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 climate-related hazards?

Welcome to the Coos Bay Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Strategy for Coastal Hazards Project

This story map series is 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 Coos Bay community’s biggest vulnerabilities to climate-related coastal hazards. The goal is to build a network of people supporting resilient coastal communities and ecosystems in Coos Bay, Oregon.
