Prioritizing Coastal Adaptation Options

The Sydney Coastal Councils Group (Australia) has release multiple reports associated with its project, Prioritising Coastal Adaptation and Development Options for Local Government. The project developed information on the range of available adaptation strategies and provides guidance for Local Governments and asset managers, based on both NSW and Queensland case studies,  in how to implement feasible options. Specific delivverables from the project include a Literature Review of Adaptation to Climate Change in the Coastal Zone, which provides an overview of current approaches to adaptation, a GIS-based Multi-Criteria Analysis Framework to support consideration of diverse adaptation management alternatives around future protection, development, or redevelopment of coastal lands, and a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework to assess the impacts of coastal decisions.
