Climate change and sea level rise pose a significant threat to the coast, including increased coastal erosion and flooding. To ensure coastal resilience, it is important to anticipate change and develop strategic pro-active management plans. These need to consider the physical and socio-economic dimensions of the coast and its changes. They also need to recognise historical legacy and work with change where appropriate, and allow for rapid directed and slow progressive transitions.
Taking the current Shoreline Management Planning (SMP) framework as a starting point, we are developing new methods to enhance coastal resilience as follows:
- Review the current strengths and weakness of SMPs (including liaising with the current SMP2-Refresh)
- Develop new strategic options for shoreline management, taking a resilience perspective
- Demonstrate the utility of these methods on selected case studies.
This has involved one national and two regional workshops (in London, Havant and York). This final workshop will present the outcomes of this research to date and allow stakeholder feedback to inform the final outcome.
If you would like to attend please add your name here by Friday 1 November.
This meeting is being led by Prof Robert Nicholls at the University of Southampton Southampton (and co-organised by Sally Brown).
