Incorporate strategies into local comprehensive plans and post-disaster redevelopment plans to discourage new development or post-disaster redevelopment in vulnerable areas in order to reduce future risk and economic losses associated with sea level rise and flooding.

Work with the appropriate local, regional, and state authorities to revise building codes and land development regulations to require vulnerability reduction measures (e.g., additional hardening, higher floor elevations, and the incorporation of natural infrastructure) for increased resilience of all new construction, redevelopment, and infrastructure.

Support community land trusts and cooperatives to increase access to community-owned affordable housing.
