Details

The aim of this scoping study was to establish a programme of science to provide managers of coast protection assets with improved procedures and decision-support tools for the identification and prioritisation of management interventions.

The report describes existing data sources, methods and tools. It proposes a framework for the development of a coherent set of tools/guidance to support the management of coastal assets, together with an associated programme of supporting science.
