The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to provide an overall vision for our agency and quantified objectives to measure the effectiveness of our work. The Strategic Plan articulates our view of the future of the California coast and its watersheds over the next five years—including the opportunities to improve resilience to climate change and to promote environmental equity and justice.
2023-2027 Strategic Plan
The Coastal Conservancy has been guided by a five year Strategic Plan for the past twenty years. In December 2022, our Board adopted a new Strategic Plan for the five year period of 2023-2027.
Throughout the development of this Strategic Plan, the Conservancy engaged and gathered input from more than 1,000 individuals representing both existing and potential new partner entities. The engagement included members of the public as well as community-based organizations, inclusive access advocates, tribes and tribal nonprofits, environmental groups, coastal cities and counties, other state and local agencies, and entities advancing workforce development. A major focus of the engagement effort was to hear ideas about how the Conservancy could change its practices to better serve systemically excluded communities. Many of the participants in the engagement were potential partners that had not worked with the Conservancy.
