Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This webinar is focused on key tradeoffs and economic values associated with different approaches to coastal adaptation, and what it means for adaptation that will be most beneficial to the public. This webinar includes an evaluation of tradeoffs between green and grey infrastructure for coastal adaptation, and the benefits and costs that can result. The focus of the webinar is how economists conceptualize and measure the benefits and costs of coastal adaptation, with particular emphasis on more difficult-to-quantify non-market benefits. It also covers the difference between financial (or accounting) benefits and costs, and economic benefits and costs.
