Phase 1 of this project, completed in Spring 2021, led to the development of a Coastal Resilience Action Strategy, which included a set of key recommendations and prioritized climate resilience projects, actions, and implementation criteria designed to determine the greatest need, impact and opportunity. Phase 2 of this project ended in Winter 2021-22, and resulted in the development of sustainable and scalable financing options that will help lead Bourne towards successful long-term project implementation and community resilience. Both phases were provided through technical assistance from the SNEP Network.
