‘Coastal Futures Hub’ Aims to Protect Rural Communities Threatened by Climate Change

Since 1986, faculty and students of the University of Virginia’s Department of Environmental Sciences have conducted scientific research on the impact of global climate change on the coastal landscapes of Virginia’s Eastern Shore. This fall, a new initiative led by the University’s Environmental Resilience Institute will expand those efforts by creating a network of policymakers, community stakeholders, educators and researchers from UVA’s College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Science, School of Architecture and several cross-disciplinary research institutes to help Eastern Shore residents use that science to make practical decisions about how they will respond to the changes threatening their communities and their economy.
