We assess how new data technologies are helping innovative assessment methodologies, implementation, and monitoring of nature-based approaches in integrated coastal zone management and disaster risk management in the Latin America and the Caribbean region. We present new information showing how breakthroughs in data and modeling technologies are supporting better quantification of outcomes of nature-based approaches, in biophysical and social metrics, along coastal regions in The Bahamas, Belize and Mexico. Together, this set of diverse decision contexts demonstrates the power of new technologies in advancing nature-based solutions to climate resilience and accountability for integrated development planning.
