Texas Resilience Planning
The Texas Coastal Management Program developed the Texas Coastal Resiliency Master Plan to provide a framework for community, socioeconomic, ecologic, and infrastructure protection from coastal hazards, including short-term impacts such as flooding and storm surge, and long-term impacts such as erosion and habitat loss. The Plan identifies priority projects that mitigate thes coastal hazards. As these priority projects are implemented, the Plan calls for monitoring and adaptive management to identify and learn about high performing projects to design more effective future projects as well as to improve coastal science, engineering, and planning for the next generation of coastal management. The Plan ultimately aims to protect and promote a vibrant and resilient Texas coast that supports and sustains a strong economy and healthy environment for all who live, work, play, or otherwise benefit from the natural resources and infrastructure along the Texas coast.
