A New Horizon: Innovative Reclamation for a Just Transition

This regional report released by the Reclaiming Appalachia Coalition in fall 2019 follows last year’s report and further seeks to spur innovative economic development throughout Appalachia in communities where the landscape has been irreparably changed by coal mining. The report highlights successes from 2018 and provides case studies of projects that advance community development amidst abandoned mine lands, or in some cases by reclaiming abandoned mine features as part of the project. The report is a collaborative project from Appalachian Voices, Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center, Coalfield Development, Downstream Strategies and Rural Action.
