Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This Report focuses on the development and testing of the Municipal Natural Assets Initiative Coastal Toolbox model in Gibsons, British Columbia. This project focused on how enhancing coastal natural assets like subtidal eelgrass, coastal vegetation or beach sediments could reduce flood and erosion impacts in coordination with conventional grey infrastructure. The process and context of the development of this model and impacts of climate change on rates of erosion and flood protection are presented in this report.
