The changing climate is having and will continue to have varying local effects on physical features, habitats, and human communities everywhere on our planet. All those who need to make decisions, at individual or societal levels, need to better understand the effects of climate change in order to lessen its risks and make themselves and their communities more resilient. Taking up the recognized challenges within its own purview (Weber, 2009), since 2008 the Oregon Sea Grant program at Oregon State University has engaged and assisted small, rural coastal communities in addressing the climate-related risks that community members have been concerned about.
