A Process for Long-term Hazard Mitigation, Adaptation, and Managed Retreat in Hampton
The Climigration Network seed grant enabled the Seabrook-Hamptons Estuary to conduct a Situation Assessment to better understand flooding impacts, costs, concerns, and experiences in Hampton, NH. The Situation Assessment was based on the results of an extensive survey completed by 69 Hampton residents and property owners, plus select one-on-one interviews. Compiling the Situation Assessment showed how crucial it is that Hampton be better prepared for future flooding, and that related projects be implemented with careful coordination. A Coastal Hazards Adaptation Team, with representatives from most Town boards and commissions, was formed and has met monthly since January, 2019 to help address these dire needs.
