Description:

Over time, we are likely to face increasing challenges in making decisions to sustain and restore our waters and coasts, as pressures increase due to sea level rise and an increasing population, among other changes. Every action costs money, and most choices require giving up something that people value. Over time, personal and public values can change, and scientific knowledge grows, so the process of managing people’s interactions with nature is an ongoing and evolutionary endeavor.
