The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds (PCW) is a collaborative effort among public-and private-sector citizens in the Coos Bay community to develop locally-driven approaches to responsible development, and to help prepare for climate-related changes on Oregon’s south coast.

Coastal Hazards in Coos Bay
Which parts of the Coos Bay community are most vulnerable to coastal hazards?

Welcome to the Coos Bay Climate Hazards Adaptation Plan

The Coos Bay Climate Hazards Adaptation Plan (pdf here) and accompanying story map series are designed to assist individuals, communities, and government officials as they identify practical approaches to mitigate coastal hazards in Coos Bay. As part of a two-year grant from the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), we evaluated the Coos Bay area’s most vulnerable systems to climate-related coastal hazards and have begun to identify adaptation strategies the community can take in response. The goal is to build a network of people and organizations who will take action to reduce our community’s vulnerabilities and create a more resilient coastal community and ecosystem for the Coos Bay area.
