SI14C:
Transdisciplinary Approaches to Coastal Challenges Posters

Session ID#: 85286

Session Description:
Addressing diverse and interconnected problems in coastal areas, including the compounding effects of a changing climate, demands innovative strategies that intersect multiple disciplines including engineering, ecology, oceanography, communication, climate science, and community planning. This session will highlight the importance of transdisciplinary research to this process, which involves the engagement of coastal stakeholders in the development of research questions, the assessment of implications of research for planning and policy, the communication of research results, and the implementation of coastal solutions. In this session, we highlight research efforts that utilize transdisciplinary approaches to solve coastal challenges, while effectively incorporating coastal stakeholders. Successes, benefits, and challenges to implementing transdisciplinary research will be shared, as well as mechanisms to more effectively communicate with stakeholders.
