The Coastal Resilience Open Data Platform hosted by NFWF provides access to the monitoring data collected or generated by NFWF grantees and partners through our programs that fund conservation for coastal resilience, including the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program. This searchable data platform is designed to store metadata and data files for discovery and sharing among NFWF grantees, partners and the wider conservation community. Datasets include both spatial and tabular data and span ecological and socioeconomic topics for coastal restoration activities at locations funded by each program. A list of the NFWF programs currently participating in this platform is available on the Programs page.
This data platform is part of a broader effort to provide a transparent means of reporting the measurable impacts of coastal resilience projects. A related metrics database and reporting tool is being developed that will be used to track and communicate the impacts and cost-effectiveness of funding different types of resilience projects. Funding for development of these systems is provided under the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program.
