“Coasting into resilience: A green new infrastructure for Hampton's Buckroe Beach”

Zooming into Hampton’s community of Buckroe, Florida International University’s competition kickstarted their work by getting a community-focused understanding of sea-level rise history and projections. Their work involves analysis of the sustainability of existing water infrastructure and management systems, as well as adaptation scenarios centered around green infrastructure. In doing so, they propose an outcome that would also inform residents and tourists of the community’s historical gems, natural ecosystems, flooding, and climate change.
