Southwest coastal studies

Earlier this year the South West and Peel Coastal Management Group (CoastSWaP) completed a series of ten Coastal Management Case Studies, based on key findings and topics from fifteen coastal stakeholder forums held over three years from 2014 – 2016.  This included information on successful programs, projects and methods developed by stakeholders that have improved the efficiency and effectiveness of their coastal management work, such as: revegetation using spinifex, brushing techniques and calculation, volunteer ranger programs, coastal condition assessments and our stakeholder forums. Other case study topics include snapshots of the WA Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Planning (CHRMAP) framework, and the status of coastcare and coastal management in the Peel Harvey and South West regions.

CoastSWaP hopes that these Case Studies will help to inspire and encourage coastal managers to: implement similar successful projects where suitable; engage and share further information with stakeholders and work together to address priority issues; promote further discussion on methodologies and frameworks to improve efficiency and effectiveness of coastal management in the south west and peel regions.
