A VERY INTERESTING PLATFORM ON COASTAL RESILIENCE ...
The MPA Guide is a science-based tool and framework to identify different types of MPAs and connect these types of MPAs with the outcomes they are expected to achieve.
The MPA Guide consists of four elements: Stage of Establishment, Level of Protection, Enabling Conditions, and Outcomes.

RISK AND RESILIENCE: FROM GOOD IDEA TO GOOD PRACTICE
This study argues that resilience has sufficient technical added-value (distinct from resilience as a political agenda) and outlines how it can be applied to programming, and, in response to challenges on the ground how donors and key partners can incentivise integrating resilience into programming. There are also recommendations for further study to support further integration of resilience into programming

BLUE BARRIERS: A NATURE-BASED SOLUTION TO BUILD RESILIENCE
A new tide of innovation for reef-lined coasts seeks to build coastal resilience and blue growth
Flooding and erosion are growing problems for low lying coastal zones across the world. These phenomena are expected to worsen globally by 2-3 orders of magnitude by 2100. While today coral reefs act as natural infrastructure, protecting coastal communities against wave action and storm impacts, the reefs are suffering continuous degradation...

Indonesia is the largest archipelagic nation in the world with 17,504 islands, a coastline of 108,000 kilometers, and 15.8 percent (27,255 square km) of the world’s coral reefs...?
Coastal resilience means building the ability of a community to "bounce back" after hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and flooding – rather than simply reacting to impacts
RESILIENCE SELF ASSESSMENT TOOL (R-SAT)
This tool has been initially developed by the EU Transatlantic MPAs Network Project. These Developments are currently suported by the EU Ocean Governance Project. Tests in various MAPs are currently ongoing.
TNC COASTAL RESILIENCE WEBSITE
Coastal Resilience is a program led by The Nature Conservancy to examine nature’s role in reducing coastal flood risk. The program consists of an approach, a web mapping tool, and a network of practitioners around the world supporting hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning.
INTERNATIONAL OCEAN GOVERNANCE: AN AGENDA FOR THE FUTURE OF OUR OCEANS
On 15 March 2019, the Commission published a joint report outlining the progress made on the ocean governance agenda since the adoption of the Joint Communication on International Ocean Governance together with the High Representative of the European Union two years ago. The 50 actions for safe, secure, clean and sustainably managed oceans in Europe and around the world are all successfully being implemented, while on a number of them the work will continue....

OBSERVATOIRE DE LA CÔTE AQUITAINE: LES RISQUES CÔTIERS
Un risque naturel se définit comme le croisement entre un aléa et des enjeux. Un aléa est la manifestation d’un phénomène d’origine naturel susceptible de produire des dommages se caractérisant par une occurrence, une intensité, une emprise spatiale et une durée, tandis que les enjeux sont l’ensemble des personnes et des biens susceptibles d’être affectés par l’aléa. Un aléa naturel comme l’érosion côtière, la submersion marine ou l’avancée dunaire ne devient un risque que si des enjeux sont présents....
