Overview

Climate change is affecting local communities through more intense rainfall events, higher temperatures, rising seas, and changing weather patterns that impact both natural ecosystems and the built environment. From rising sea levels that will reshape coastlines and exacerbate storm surge flooding, to changing precipitation patterns that will affect the quality and quantity of water resources at critical times of the year, there are a growing number of reasons why it benefits communities to take an integrated watershed approach to addressing these problems. Manomet believes people can best address climate change by capitalizing on the multiple benefits provided by intact, healthy ecosystems and our work on watershed resiliency is focused on putting this idea into practice.
