New Hampshire Coastal Adaptation Workgroup Website

Municipal officials, educators, and citizens can use this site to quickly connect to information about how to reduce the risk of damage from coastal hazards and get involved with coastal adaptation projects in New Hampshire.

Coastal areas are especially vulnerable to storm surge, flooding, and sea level rise, putting coastal infrastructure, property, and habitats at risk. The New Hampshire Coastal Adaptation Workgroup (NHCAW) is a collaboration of 24 organizations working directly with coastal watershed communities to ensure that they are resourceful, ready, and resilient to the impacts of extreme weather and long-term climate change. NHCAW’s website is designed to improve access to information and assistance so that local decision makers and citizens can be better prepared for future flooding.

Visitors will find links to upcoming workshops, events, and resources specific to enhancing resilience in the local coastal area—including the New Hampshire Coastal Viewer, a digital mapping tool. The website also showcases stories and photos from New Hampshire to help others learn and build on what’s already being done.
