Moroccan Coastal Management : Building Capacity to Adapt to Climate Change

Impacts from rising sea levels, coastal flooding and storm surges are becoming a challenging policy issue for planners, local authorities and stakeholders in areas such as Morocco's northeastern coast.

This project will support capacity building and the development of tools and methods to underpin preparation for and responses to climate-related events in coastal zones, where much of the world's population, resources and infrastructure are concentrated. Researchers will identify population vulnerability; develop adaptation strategies and land use guidelines while optimizing the tradeoffs between different stakeholders; and enhance local capacity for participatory planning.
