CHART"s Assistant Director, Tara Lambeth, presented at State of the Coast 2016. Her presentation was entitled "Determining Localized Risk Perception and Impacts of Projected Sea Level Rise to Enhance Stakeholder Mitigation Planning Through Visualization Tools", and detailed a project that, in partnership with Louisiana Sea Grant, supports coastal sustainability through a better understanding of coastal ecosystems using local knowledge. The project team collaborates with coastal residents to develop adaptation strategies utilizing remotes sensing, GIS and interviews. Residents identify key points and resources which are at risk, and discuss ways they have adapted to land loss and sea level rise, as well as ways they may adapt to these hazards in the future. CHART also provided materials on the Resilience Curriculum and Risk Literacy Project at a booth at the conference.
