The University of Delaware Sustainable Coastal Community (SCC) Initiative is an approach to address growth, land use, and environmental impacts in southern Delaware. The primary goal is to deliver science-based information to aid in decision making that fosters:
- Healthy coastal economies that include a diversity of economic possibilities, an abundance of recreation and tourism opportunities, and coastal access for all citizens;
- Coastal communities that make efficient use of land, energy and water resources and protect the resources needed to sustain coastal ecosystems and quality of life;
- Coastal citizens, community leaders, and industries that recognize the complex interrelationships between social, economic and environmental values in coastal areas and work together to balance multiple uses and optimize environmental sustainability.
