CRC is coordinating the development of the Rhode Island Shoreline Change Special Area Management Plan (Beach SAMP), a state effort focused on providing coastal communities with science, tools and technical assistance so they can make confident policy decisions that reflect long-term commitment to resiliency and adaptation practice – a key approach for ensuring Rhode Island is able to deftly accommodate flooding and erosion, chief impacts of sea level rise and strong storms tied to climate change. This project is an effort of the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC), the state’s coastal administrator, and includes widespread participation among the public, private, academic and community sectors.
