Becoming Sea Level Wise: City of Virginia Beach Resiliency Planning to Adapt to Rising Seas

Virginia Beach is among the top ten cities in the country at risk from sea level rise. In 2015, Virginia Beach launched the Comprehensive Sea Level Rise and Recurrent Flooding Capital Improvement Program, which is now known as Sea Level Wise. This session will discuss the effort and its aim to produce information and strategies that enable Virginia Beach to establish long-term resilience to sea level rise and associated recurrent flooding.
