Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report outlines the Making Room for Movement framework, which aims to build the resilience of coastal communities by developing a framework for implementing nature-based coastal adaptation. The framework includes natural, social, cultural and governance contexts and considerations in Nova Scotia and provides guidance for better aligning planning and decision-making regarding coastal development and resource use with natural systems and processes. This framework acknowledges that the public plays a crucial role in influencing decisions, but focuses its information at individuals directly involved in the decision-making process at local and provincial levels of governance.
