Eric J. Roberts
Coastal Resilience Specialist, The Nature Conservancy
Bio: Eric has worked on environmental issues with a range of
science, policy, and philanthropic organizations. Before joining TNC
in January, he served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay,
collaborated with NOAA in Washington State, and most recently worked
with the Consensus Building Institute and Mott Philanthropic in
Massachusetts. He looks forward to sailing a Sunfish in Hull Bay and
paddling through New England’s estuaries this summer.
Climate change adaptation project he's currently excited
about: To build coastal community resilience, Eric is leading a
three-year, five-state project to assess the effectiveness of
nature-based solutions to protect public well-being and infrastructure
and maintain or enhance coastal ecosystem processes in the Northeast.
Data from the effort will inform policy recommendations to incentivize
the use of shoreline management practices that provide multiple
benefits to people and nature. You can contact Eric at email@example.com
