As the Federal agency authorized to study, plan, design, construct, and renourish coastal risk reduction projects, USACE is tasked with providing technical input on current and future needs for coastal projects. Accurate, up-to-date, and accessible technical information is as a valuable resource for decision makers responsible for making balanced, information-based decisions for managing coastal programs. The Coastal Systems Portfolio Initiative database presents the “big picture” about current and future needs for coastal projects within USACE.
