With increasing pressure on the coast from climate change, sea level rise, storms, population growth, and urban & industrial development it is of critical importance to manage our coastal resources sustainably and strategically. Such thinking requires embedding our immediate priorities within a long-term vision for the coast. This event aims to shape a long-term vision for the coast – one that extends beyond the scope of shoreline management plans and the climate projections of the IPCC. Speakers drawn from regulatory authorities, business, research institutions and higher education will focus on future sea-level rise and storms, flood and erosion risk, managing coastal resources, and energy infrastructure. Discussion groups will consider: innovative coastal defence, decision-support tools for coastal planning, and building a shared perspective of coastal futures.
