How do we communicate coastal community resilience to climate risks in a way that is engaging, informative, and useful, and how do we empower coastal communities to understand and embrace the concept? What does resilience mean to coastal communities, and how do people want to be communicated with when it comes to resilience?
In this contest, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) seeks products or services (i.e., web interfaces, creative fact sheets, mobile device apps, events, etc.) that present coastal communities with a better understanding of their chronic risks (e.g., flooding, drought) and extreme weather risks (e.g., more frequent/intense storms) in a way that’s meaningful to diverse user communities. The goal is to figure out how to communicate information in a clear and resonating way to inform planning and decision-making and to motivate coastal communities to take action to decrease their vulnerability and enhance their resilience.
