About the Coastal & Water Team

The Ecology Action Centre's Coastal & Water Team advocates for new and updated coastal regulations and policy. We promote a systems view of watersheds to fill legislative gaps, clarify jurisdictions, protect coastal environments from upstream activities and encourage nature-based solutions to coastal erosion and sea-level rise.
