Keeping History Above Water: Annapolis is an international gathering on adapting historic coastal communities to sea level rise hosted by the City of Annapolis with support from the Newport Restoration Foundation.
Originally convened by the Newport Restoration Foundation in April 2016, Keeping History Above Water was one of the first national conversations to focus on the increasing and varied risks posed by rising waters on historic coastal communities and their built environments. Keeping History Above Water engages specialists from across the United States and the world to share experiences, examine risks, and discuss solutions with an emphasis on case studies and real world applications. Keeping History Above Water approaches the issue of rising waters – inclusive of sea level rise, tidal flooding, extreme precipitation, and subsidence – from a multi-disciplinary perspective in order to develop practical approaches to mitigation, protective adaptation, and resilience.
