Adapting to Rising Tides – ART Bay Area

The ART Bay Area project is a regional-scale effort to understand the interconnected vulnerabilities of Bay Area communities, natural systems and critical transportation infrastructure to increased flooding and sea level rise.

Adapting to Rising Tides Bay Area is the first ever regional comparison of the impacts of sea level rise on people, the environment, and the regional systems we rely on. The final report was released in March 2020, and was developed in partnership between BARC and its member agencies the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), through an SB1 planning grant from CalTrans.  The main report and the shorter summary report, as well as appendices and supplemental materials, are available on BCDC's ART Bay Area homepage.
