Performance of Natural Infrastructure and Nature-based Measures as Coastal Risk Reduction Features



- N/A

The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) aims to improve the ability of coastal communities to reduce risks from sea level rise and coastal storms through the use of natural infrastructure and nature-based measures. Recognizing that better quantification of the storm risk reduction benefits of these approaches is necessary to help decision-makers choose among alternatives to protect their communities, as well as help to develop new market-based or private sector funding options for natural infrastructure and nature-based measures, this paper presents a review of the state of knowledge on the performance of these approaches, compiled from existing literature and participant input obtained during an EDF-convened expert workshop in May 2015.
