This webinar will present perspectives on planning and implementing sustainable coastal adaptation solutions, particularly in small to medium-sized cities. Perspectives on process and alternatives will be presented for a distinct small urban environment (Portland, Maine) to illustrate the kinds of planning processes and measures being carried out at the local level on the East Coast of the U.S. This presentation will then be followed by a national view of sustainable coastal adaptation from the perspective of the National League of Cities, including training, outreach, and policy implications facing coastal areas in the U.S. The webinar will include feedback from all panelists on one another’s perspectives and experiences, as well as a question and answer portion for audience interaction.
