  • Description:
    Natural and working landscapes adjacent to military installations are often highly valuable coastal resources and are increasingly at risk from multiple threats, specifically climate-related hazards. As such, it is important to preserve and protect these resources not only to maintain compatibility within the military mission but also to sustain the natural and built infrastructure for the surrounding communities. A tremendous opportunity exists for Sea Grant professionals working on coastal resilience issues to partner with military and civilian personnel also working on these issues at and around coastal installations. The overall goal of this article is to describe existing efforts in the Southeast to further develop such partnerships. This article first focuses on the climate-related threats to coastal installations, particularly in the Southeast, and the steps taken by the Department of Defense (DoD), state and local governments, and regional partners, specifically the Southeast Regional Partnership for Planning and Sustainability (SERPPAS), to mitigate the risks posed to the missions of the installations and ensure installation resiliency. It then provides an overview of two categories of military programs – land acquisition and community land use planning – that have the strong potential to serve as important adaptation and coastal resilience tools that support broader community resilience beyond military installation boundaries. The article concludes with an overview of findings from a workshop held in August 2019 among SERPPAS, Sea Grant, state Coastal Zone Management program partners, and others, which focused on understanding challenges and opportunities for collaboration between military installations and communities on coastal resilience efforts as well as identifying pilot projects to enhance resilience for the benefit of military readiness and surrounding communities.
