Coastal cities are leaders in climate and ocean policy, implementing science-based and forward-thinking strategies, ensuring environmental justice for coastal communities, and serving as a laboratory for state and federal initiatives.

33% of Americans (and rising) live in coastal cities.
We are unprepared for rising seas and storms, and historically-disadvantaged communities are often hit first and worst.
Our safety, economies, food security, and communities are at risk.

Urban Ocean Lab cultivates rigorous, creative, equitable, and practical climate and ocean policy, for the future of coastal cities.
