Cape Coastal Conference Starts Today

The 5th Annual Cape Coastal Conference is starting today, December 5, at the Hyannis Resort and Conference Center.

Hosted and coordinated by the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the two-day conference groups sessions under three resiliency-focused themes: Prepare, Adapt and Restore.

At the conference, the Commission staff will give an overview of the ongoing Resilient Cape Cod Project, which kicks off its stakeholder outreach the following week.

In early 2016, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) awarded a three-year, $780,000 grant to the Cape Cod Commission and partners to develop a tool and public outreach program to investigate the environmental and socio-economic effects of local and regional coastal resiliency strategies.

The grant is funded through the NOAA’s Regional Coastal Resilience Grant program, which supports regional-scale projects that enhance the resilience of coastal communities and economies to the effects of extreme weather, climate hazards, and changing ocean conditions.
