Pew Endorses Oregon's Coastal Needs Assessment

On Sept. 7, The Pew Charitable Trusts submitted comments to the Oregon Coastal Management Program on the state’s Coastal Needs Assessment and Strategy for 2021-25. The letter expressed support for the program’s focus on incorporating nearshore hazards and climate impacts in its enforceable policies, continuing assistance for local resilience planning, and modernizing decades-old estuary management plans to reflect the best available science. Pew also backed updating the state’s Territorial Sea Plan to include an ecosystem-based approach to resource management designed to identify and protect ecologically rich areas in coastal and offshore waters.
