Virtual - Estimating the Local Marine Economy: Telling Your Story

abstract background image with blue overlay


Many jobs in coastal communities depend on marine resources and access to waterways. These jobs can be vulnerable to hazards such as coastal flooding and lake level changes. This course will help participants tell a compelling story about the importance of their waterfront by identifying local marine jobs and using local economic data. These stories are helpful when compiling information for comprehensive coastal resilience planning efforts, grant applications, and outreach projects.

The Office for Coastal Management also offers an instructor-led, onsite version of this course.
