The Planning Tool was used to compare the effects of many restoration and risk reduction projects in order to determine the suite of projects that could deliver the greatest benefits for our coast. The tool enabled planners to compare projects both individually and in groups, as well as across different funding constraints and implementation periods. This helped to determine the most beneficial projects suited for near-term or long-term implementation.
