Presentation Abstract

Puget Sound recovery is guided by regional and local strategies developed and implemented by a diverse array of actors. Implementation Strategies are a regional planning approach designed to advance and enhance recovery efforts towards specific Puget Sound Vital Sign indicator targets. The Shoreline Armoring Vital Sign aims to reduce the impacts of shoreline armor on the Puget Sound nearshore. The Shoreline Armoring Implementation Strategy addresses the interconnected nature of regulatory, incentive, technological, and planning solutions to reduce armor impacts and recover shoreline processes in Puget Sound. This poster describes four strategies to advance recovery that leverage past and ongoing investments in research, programs, and projects. Moreover, numerous projects represented at the Salish Sea Conference are currently advancing the goals of the Implementation Strategy. The strategies highlight the connection of regional strategies and programs to local strategies, programs and projects and the value of work operating at these different scales.

Shoreline armoring implementation strategy: a regional strategy to support and align actions from local to regional scales

Puget Sound recovery is guided by regional and local strategies developed and implemented by a diverse array of actors. Implementation Strategies are a regional planning approach designed to advance and enhance recovery efforts towards specific Puget Sound Vital Sign indicator targets. The Shoreline Armoring Vital Sign aims to reduce the impacts of shoreline armor on the Puget Sound nearshore. The Shoreline Armoring Implementation Strategy addresses the interconnected nature of regulatory, incentive, technological, and planning solutions to reduce armor impacts and recover shoreline processes in Puget Sound. This poster describes four strategies to advance recovery that leverage past and ongoing investments in research, programs, and projects. Moreover, numerous projects represented at the Salish Sea Conference are currently advancing the goals of the Implementation Strategy. The strategies highlight the connection of regional strategies and programs to local strategies, programs and projects and the value of work operating at these different scales.
