Coastal Management in Focus
Melanie Price from Aurora Environmental recently had the opportunity to present a keynote address at the Coastal Management Forum in Albany, which focused on achievements and innovation in coastal management.
Melanie spoke on how the South Coast has embraced Integrated Coastal Zone Management, including case studies applicable to our region. She also considered opportunities, impediments and a ‘no regrets’ approach to prioritising coastal planning, actions and activities.
The forum was supported by South Coast Management Group and the City of Albany and complemented by a CoastAdapt workshop which introduced a new online planning and management tool for the coastal zone, developed by the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF). This tool includes a wealth of information and advice for land managers who are seeking to build resilient coastal communities. The tool can be accessed at: https://coastadapt.com.au/
Thank you to all those who organised the event.
