Reducing flood risk

Making our coastal communities more resilient

The problem: Climate change is making coastal erosion and storm surges worse. Nearly 40% of the world’s people live along coasts, many of which have been stripped of their natural protections under pressures of erosion, development and now — rising seas. It’s even worse for people who live in low-lying areas.

What we’re doing about it: We’re working on the largest-ever coastal restoration program to rebuild land and provide storm protection in Louisiana. We also work with coastal planners and decision-makers to rebuild natural infrastructure and provide innovative ways to finance these kinds of projects.
