Bay Area’s Adapting to Rising Tides Project

In 2010, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management (NOAA OCM) brought together local, regional, state and federal agencies and organizations, as well as non-profit and private associations for a collaborative planning project along the Alameda County shoreline, the ART Subregional Project, to identify how current and future flooding will affect communities, infrastructure, ecosystems and economy.

Since then, the ART Program has continued to both lead and support multi-sector, cross-jurisdictional projects that build local and regional capacity in the San Francisco Bay Area to plan for and implement adaptation responses. These efforts have enabled the ART Program to test and refine adaptation planning methods (ART Approach) to integrate sustainability and transparent decision-making from start to finish, and foster robust collaborations that lead to action on adaptation.
