K&W Assists with Northeast Ocean Industry Sector Outreach

The Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC) engaged K&W, in partnership with the Consensus Building Institute (affiliated with Harvard and MIT) and a team of technical experts, to support regional ocean planning in New England. Through interviews and surveys, development of white papers, and outreach meetings, the team helped NROC and the region’s stakeholders better understand the near- and longer-term trends and issues associated with key ocean industry activities in New England waters, including: maritime commerce, offshore energy, and aquaculture. The white papers are available on the NROC website.
