Coastal Resilience Team

Team Chair
Rhonda Price, Mississippi Department of Marine Resources  

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance Coastal Resilience Team will focus its actions on our regional ability to respond to natural and manmade hazards, including risk communication techniques and resilience assessments, as well as a variety of coastal adaptation and planning methods. The Coastal Resilience Team is developing strategies and tools that, when implemented, can create safer, more resilient communities.

Team Goals: Increase awareness and knowledge of tools and resources to assist coastal stakeholders in becoming more resilient and sustainable: promote the understanding of coastal risks and the availability of resilience and restoration tools for those who live, work, visit and do business in the Gulf of Mexico; promote adaptation, mitigation and restoration as strategies to preserve heritage, conserve natural resources and support the economic viability of the coast.
