Effective Coastal Management that Protects and Restores the N.C. Coast
Our Coastal Management Goal is deeply intertwined with, and supports, the work in all four of our other goals. The federation shares guidance and policy expertise to coastal communities, partners and people who share our vision for a thriving coast and a strong coastal economy. We prioritize coastal resilience in our work, recognizing that now is the critical time to prepare for the future. This means ensuring our natural defenses are sound, our waters are safe for fishing and swimming and we are free of emerging contaminants and other threats like offshore oil. This year, we will continue to unite communities, businesses, government agencies and academia to work for effective coastal management decisions.
