One Coast, One Future

Report

On January 15, 2009, the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative responded to a request from nineteen local and state elected officials from California, Oregon, and Washington for a report on high priority actions that they, in their capacity as local and state officials, can take to improve the health of coastal and ocean ecosystems and incorporate sound science into decision making. The report One Coast, One Future focuses on actions that local leaders can take to implement an integrated approach to managing the coast and ways that state legislatures can support their efforts.
