The Coastal Training Program (CTP) provides the most current science-based information, tools, and techniques to improve coastal decision-making in Alabama. It does this through a variety of trainings that include workshops, hands-on and field activities, and interactive web-based exercises.

The key issues addressed are:

  • reduction of non-point source pollution
  • land use management practices
  • protection of water resources
  • preservation of biodiversity
  • management of invasive species
  • disaster response plan

Each CTP event is designed to:

  • enhance effective networking and collaboration across disciplines
  • increase understanding of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of human activity
  • promote stewardship within the coastal landscape
