Coastal Law Center Identifies Emerging Issues

North Carolina Sea Grant

North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Coastal Resources Law, Planning and Policy Center (a joint program with NC Sea Grant and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s Law School) cover a variety of topics related to resiliency. NC Sea Grant’s law, policy and community development specialist serves as the Center’s co-director and is working with Virginia Sea Grant and other partners to look at social vulnerability in terms of resiliency planning, mitigation and response for communities that include the poor, elderly and disabled. Previously, NC Sea Grant has led reviews of North Carolina’s ocean policies as well as emerging issues in the estuarine region. Both of those studies included state agencies and other partners who deal with hazards and planning. The Center, in partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law, also presents annual continuing education workshops for law and policy professionals, with topics often focusing on coastal hazards and planning.
