Cape Cod Coastal Planner
The Cape Cod Commission and its partners built the Cape Cod Coastal Planner, a map-based decision-support tool to help residents and decision-makers understand the relative environmental and socio-economic effects of implementing adaptation strategies to address sea level rise, storm surge, and erosion. The tool integrates research on potential adaptation strategies for Cape Cod communities and how ecosystem services are impacted by hazards and strategy selection. Development of the Cape Cod Coastal Planner was also informed by an extensive stakeholder process, integrating feedback from potential users across the region, and tested through a pilot project with the Town of Barnstable. The Cape Cod Coastal Planner is a product of the Resilient Cape Cod project.
