This May, Climate Science Alliance team members participated in an engaging workshop hosted by the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (TRNERR), that highlighted nature-based solutions that promote resilience for coastal communities.
In partnership with trainers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve (TRNERR) hosted an engaging workshop on May 18th, 2023 highlighting nature-based solutions that promote resilience for coastal communities.
The Binational Coastal Resilience Workshop was held on Kumiai homelands in Tijuana, and had a diverse array of attendees that ranged from community leaders, non-profit representatives, academics, and more that came from both sides of the US-Mexico border.
Throughout the training event, participants designed a nature-based solution project that would increase coastal resilience. The training culminated in each team presenting their project using an elevator pitch to the rest of the participants. It was wonderful to see how unique each project was, and the approach each team took to strengthen the resilience of coastal communities.
Thank you to TRNERR for the invitation!
