AWF recently launched its latest major initiative – Sea Safe Community Certification (SSCC), responding to a growing need for coastal communities to counter the perceived stigma of risk that can impact economies and real estate values, financing, and public services. The new certification can instead strengthen communities through adaptation actions that can stabilize strong investment. The program will help communities move beyond resiliency planning and into action. The certification process is about living with water and building with nature to fortify economies and environments to ensure a viable future. You can download the case for support here.
