Description The Resilience Action Demonstration Project (RAD) was a 2019-2021 NOAA-funded partnership between the Washington State Department of Ecology and Washington Sea Grant that piloted an inter-agency hazards resilience assistance team. This report describes the team’s outreach, research, and collaboration with local, state, federal, and Tribal partners to advance locally driven hazards resilience projects and plans while developing strategies to improve coastal hazards resilience across Washington’s Pacific Coast. The report recommends specific state-led actions to improve coastal hazards resilience, including a strategy for establishing a permanent Coastal Hazards Organizational Resilience Team, or COHORT.

The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
