Project Location: Hampton, VA
The city of Hampton, Virginia is on the front line of climate change with low elevation, high rate of land subsidence, and intense storm surge risk from direct exposure to the Atlantic Ocean.
This project uses the Global Carbon Market to catalyze nature based coastal infrastructure that is self-regenerating and captures carbon from the atmosphere while offering structural protection for both at risk coastal wetlands and human life.
