As Rhode Island has been experiencing a changing climate, the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center/Sea Grant and its partners like URI’s Ocean Engineering and Environmental Data Center, the Coastal Resources Management Council, among others have been active in developing a suite of user-friendly tools to help you assess the risks, and identify options to reduce future impacts from flooding, sea level rise, and coastal erosion.

These Resilience Tools are aids for understanding risk to coastal hazards and identifying opportunities. For example, they can help residents concerned about properties or decision-makers looking to protect community infrastructure. By understanding risk, communities can be better prepared to adapt, and plan for a stronger and safer future.
