Coastal America Partnership
Matching Collaborative Tools to Coastal Challenges
The Coastal America Partnership is an action-oriented, results-driven collaboration process dedicated to restoring and preserving coastal ecosystems and addressing critical environmental issues.
Our Partnership brings together people and resources from federal agencies, state and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and the private sector to collaboratively address our nation's coastal environmental challenges.
With a goal of better management of coastal resources, the partnership coordinates the statutory responsibilities and combines the resources and expertise of 16 federal agencies, 24 Coastal Ecosystem Learning Centers, and hundreds of corporate partners.
As a result, the Coastal America Partnership maximizes the environmental and economic benefits—and minimizes the costs—of addressing complex watershed, coastal, and marine problems.
