California Coastal Program

Established in 2012, the California Coastal Program (CCP) seeks to elevate conservation of California’s coastal environment and equitable public access to the coast as priorities for California policymakers. CCP works to advance public funding and policies that address sea level rise and other climate change impacts to coastal ecosystems and communities, and it ensures that relevant public agencies remain transparent and accountable. CCP also seeks to align West Coast offshore renewable energy development with state strategies for conservation, equity, and justice, and support renewable energy planning and permitting that is science-based, equitable, and broadly inclusive of input from stakeholders and Native American Tribes and Tribal communities.
