Queensland’s communities are frequently challenged by coastal hazards such as cyclones and storm surges, and by the constant, long-term dynamics of sandy shores responding to climatic forces. As a result, erosion and storm tide inundation threaten coastal settlements and infrastructure. Climate variability and change, including sea level rise trends, possible changes in cyclone patterns and the mean wave climate, will likely add pressure on coastal communities across the State in the future. Queensland coastal councils are responsible to manage these risks at the local scale, following State advice and requirements, including the development of Shoreline Erosion Management Plans and Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategies.
Purpose of the course
