AUTHORS: Cally Harper, PhD, CFM, Cape Cod Commission

ABSTRACT: Being resilient requires taking a look back at past damages from hazard events and reviewing models of future climate scenarios. Individuals, governments, institutions and businesses can only change if they have a clear path forward. In this session, the speaker will describe collaborative approaches being used to increase Cape Cod’s resilience to severe storms and climate change impacts. Collaborative efforts involving multiple partners include hazard mitigation planning, vulnerability assessments of transportation assets using an online Sea Level Rise Viewer, and a 3-year grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to build GIS-based resiliency strategies for municipal officials and the general public. Mapping tools developed by the Cape Cod Commission are used to translate technical data into understandable and actionable language, estimate loss of individual and government assets, communicate adaptation strategies, assess people’s willingness to pay, communicate the need for action, and engage the public in selecting and implementing site-specific strategies.
