Crisfield-UCS Partnership


The City of Crisfield has partnered with the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) to inform the City’s
flood mitigation and adaptation plans through localized projections of coastal inundation due to sea
level rise, and individual asset flood risk mapping. This work builds on years of research on sea level rise
by UCS, and on the City’s partnership with The Nature Conservancy and others.


UCS is a member-supported nonprofit that’s fighting for a safer and healthier world. UCS is a national
organization that puts rigorous, independent science into action, developing solutions and advocating
for a healthy, safe, and just future. We have scientists and analysts on staff, and work with our Science
Network with over 26,000 members. Most important, we value the expertise of communities, and are
excited to work with both scientists and nonscientists to advocate for change.
