Project Description

The Island Institute works to sustain Maine’s island and remote coastal communities, and exchanges ideas and experiences to further community sustainability in Maine and beyond. With this award, the project team plans to partner with coastal communities to determine the risks they face from storms and sea level rise, and the strategies they can use to increase their resilience. Working with a network of 150 participants, the team will create multimedia case studies, provide community-based support and training, and share project impacts and lessons learned through national networks. The team’s goal is to ensure that fishing communities in Maine and beyond can continue to make their living from the sea.
