Acting Director, NOAA Office of Coastal Resource Management PRESENTATION TITLE: How Big Should My Village Be? Strategic Partnerships for Increased Climate Adaptation and Mitigation ABSTRACT: There is a growing momentum across sectors in the coastal zone (e.g., transportation planners, natural resource managers, port developers) to incorporate climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies into planning and management to protect our Nation's coastlines. In this talk, Ms. Davidson will address the perception and management of risk by examining relevant factors ranging from the geophysical to the political. How we approach risk now will shape our future exposure, and the costs associated with major environmental events.

The Indian River Lagoon Aquatic Preserves consist of seven separate aquatic preserves from Volusia to Palm Beach Counties. Through restoration projects, volunteer events, and public outreach, the IRLAP staff conducts several projects, including spoil island enhancement, shoreline restoration, spoil island bird and diamondback terrapin monitoring. These projects are conducted with heavy involvement of the community at all phases of implementation and are essential to the office’s success. The Spoil Island Project is a coalition of government entities and local groups to enhance spoil islands ecologically and for recreational uses. The lecture will cover the many facets of the Spoil Island Project as well as an overview of other IRLAP programs and how to help.
