A new report from Aspen Global Change Institute and the University of Arizona Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions provides a first-of-its-kind comprehensive assessment of the effectiveness of a variety of adaptation practices that leverage nature-based solutions (NbS) to help build more climate-resilient coasts and coastal communities.

This report summarizes the state of knowledge of Nature-based Solutions (NbS) in the context of coastal climate adaptation in the United States and identifies numerous challenges and opportunities.
Many US coastal states are looking to the prospect of ocean renewable energy (ORE), particularly offshore wind, to help meet ambitious emissions reduction goals. Social science offers insight into who supports or opposes ORE and why, and suggests actions that could help promote a more just transition to ORE.
