1. Identify and evaluate alternative strategies for chronic and acute coastal hazard mitigation to improve decision-making in Oregon.
2. Understand and assess distributional consequences and social equity concerns of coastal adaptation and resilience decisions in Oregon.
3. Harness the networked expertise of local, county, state, and federal officials, NGOs, and academic leaders to develop actionable knowledge that informs both coastwide and localized adaptation policies.
4. Increase community literacy and capacity for adaptation by providing strategies that illustrates pathways to community-valued long term goals with realistic implementation timeframes.
The community resilience metrics defined by the Oregon Coastal Futures (OCF) project will be evaluated at multiple policy and climate scenarios at two scales:
1. Oregon statewide study area (A)
2. Three county detailed study area (B) of the northern Oregon coast including Clatsop, Tillamook, and Lincoln counties
