Rolling Easements Provide a Sensible Approach to Sea Level Rise
- "This document presents an alternative vision, in which future development of some low-lying coastal lands is based on the premise that eventually the land must give way to the rising sea. We provide a primer on more than a dozen approaches for ensuring that wetlands and beaches can migrate inland, as people remove buildings, roads, and other structures from land as it becomes submerged. Collectively, these approaches are known as rolling easements." - excerpt from the Preface of EPA's report Rolling Easements.
