RISE is a U.S.-based non-profit with a mission to accelerate innovation and business growth by identifying and scaling solutions to coastal communities’ resilience challenges.
How We Work
The impact of climate change is being experienced at an accelerated rate. While it touches all of us – whether we live in urban or rural areas – the effects of rapid sea level rise on coastal communities are particularly destructive. With increasing amounts of our global population living in coastal communities, we need innovative, long-term solutions that focus on mitigation, adaptation, and – ultimately – our shared safety and prosperity.
