CESL Benefits

Benefits of the Comprehensive Evaluation of Projects with Respect to Sea Level Change effort include:

  • Providing assistance in evaluating robustness of projects to potential Sea Level Change (as part of a nationwide screening and prioritization process to identify projects that need to take Sea Level Change into consideration right away, as well as those that can take longer)
  • Identification and capture of some of the information about each project that is needed to perform an initial vulnerability assessment and determine if a more detailed project assessment is necessary
  • Projects determined to be highly susceptible to Sea Level Change will be identified and allow districts to perform more detailed project-scale assessment
  • Generate custom reports and project specific summaries
  • Providing to USACE districts and divisions the ability to communicate with other Federal and state agencies as well as local sponsors about projected Sea Level Change impacts
