2014 Virginia Coastal Partners Workshop: Assessing Past Progress, Planning the Future

2014 Virginia Coastal Partners Workshop LogoPlease join us for an interactive workshop for Virginia coastal partners and constituencies - including regional, local and state agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, marine-related businesses, and individuals those who help manage and protect Virginia's coastal resources.  

Every five years the Virginia Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Program, in partnership with coastal stakeholders, assesses the status of the Commonwealth's coastal resources and management programs (Section 309 Coastal Needs and Assessment and Strategy). Based on this assessment, we prioritize initiatives to develop new policies to better manage these valuable resources. View the current 2011-2015 assessment and strategies.  

During the course of the workshop, you'll hear presentations on important and evolving coastal resource management issues.  You will have an opportunity to participate in discussions to prioritize these issues and to begin developing ideas for new management strategies for 2016 - 2020. The workshop will be organized around the following topics:

    • coastal hazards
    • public access
    • ocean resources & marine debris
    • aquaculture
    • energy facility siting
    • cumulative and secondary impacts of coastal growth and development
    • special area management plans
    • wetlands
