NOAA Sea Grant and Climate Change: Helping the Nation Prepare

One of NOAA Sea Grant's priorities is to improve the resilience of coastal communities to hazards, including effects of climate change.

Local credibility ... That’s a distinctive strength of the National Sea Grant College Program

As a network of university-based programs in every coastal and Great Lakes state, NOAA Sea Grant has earned a reputation as a trusted source of science in coastal communities. NOAA Sea Grant funds competitive scientific research of the highest caliber and also helps coastal knowledge-users make timely use of research results. Now, recognizing the local diversity and complexity of issues associated with coastal climate change, Sea Grant has emerged as a national leader in preparing for its effects.

One of NOAA's priorities is to improve the resilience of coastal communities to hazards, including the effects of climate change.

For examples of some of the projects undertaken by the nation's Sea Grant programs, check out NOAA Sea Grant's four-page fact sheet, "NOAA Sea Grant and Climate Change: Helping the Nation Prepare" (pdf).

This report highlights three crucial roles that NOAA Sea Grant plays locally and nationally—Informing Policy and Management, Helping Communities Prepare, and Supporting Economic Resilience and Opportunity—and outlines the resulting benefits.

For more information on any of the items mentioned in the fact sheet, contact your local Sea Grant program (click here) or the National Sea Grant Office (click here).
