Practical Delivery of Nature-based Shoreline Solutions
June 14, 2021

Nature-based shoreline solutions provide natural resilience to waterfront communities and infrastructure, they work well as habitat restoration and can provide a benefit for restoration and compensation benefits to offset project impacts. They are an innovative and cost-effective method for coastal zone management because they can add relatively low maintenance green space to coastal lands and provide some ancillary benefits that include: recreational asset, flood protection, erosion protection, carbon sink, fish and wildlife habitat. In this interactive session we outline an effective and responsible multi-stage process for design, implementation, and monitoring of nature-based shoreline solutions.

Presenters: Phil Osborne, Morgan Tidd, Keyvan Mahlujy
