The National Wildlife Federation requested ASFPM assist in developing a set of climate change adaptation case studies to highlight ecological approaches to natural hazard risk reduction. Natural Defenses in Action highlights the important role natural and nature-based approaches can play in reducing the mounting risks to our communities from weather and climate-related natural hazards. This report profiles a dozen case studies that highlight best-in-class examples of how natural defenses are being put to use to avoid or reduce risks from flooding, coastal storms, erosion and wildfire.
