This is a one-day general training in Anchorage, with a second half-day technical training session, and will provide participants a standard method to describe their coastal and marine economies and identify industries and populations of workers that are potentially vulnerable to coastal hazards or competing for space along the waterfront. This information can be used for comprehensive, harbor, and waterfront planning, as well as resilience planning efforts.

General Interest/Local Government Officials: Participants will identify coastal and local marine industry employment data and illustrate the contribution of marine industries to the local and regional economy. This information can be used for grant writing, advocacy work and to inform about potential economic losses from coastal hazards.

Industry Representatives: Participants will gain establishment and employment data about their industry in the context of the coastal and marine economy. This information can be used for general analysis and advocacy of an industry.

Coastal/Regional/Town Planners: Participants will learn a standard method to describe their coastal and marine economies and identify industries and populations of workers that are potentially vulnerable to coastal hazards or competing for space along the waterfront. This information can be used for comprehensive, harbor, and waterfront planning, as well as resilience planning efforts.

Economists: Participants will be introduced to a methodology for estimating oceans and marine economies. The data outputs from the methods in the training can be used as inputs for more detailed and in-depth economic analysis.

Course modules are taught by NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management training staff and local partners. Six hours of certification maintenance credits for this course have been approved by the American Institute of Certified Planners. Five core continuing education credits have been approved for certified floodplain managers.

There is no fee for the training, but space is limited. Participants must register online to reserve a seat.
