Coastal Management: Changing coast, changing climate, changing minds

Description

The Institution of Civil Engineers Coastal Management conference series is the leading forum for the presentation of the latest developments in coastal engineering. The 8th conference took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands from 8-9 September 2015 and attracted delegates from over 30 countries.

The proceedings of this conference, Coastal Management: changing coast, changing climate, changing minds, comprise more than 50 peer-reviewed papers which present current issues, international research and practical applications.

The conference covered a full range of topics, including:

• Innovative coastal planning, design and management
• Social, environmental and climatic change including coastal erosion, flooding and tsunamis
• Coastal defence including dikes, dams and floodgates
• Shoreline management
• Coastal policy
• Funding and accountability.

This book is an essential resource for coastal engineers, coastal and environmental scientists, local and central government authorities and coastal stakeholders, all of whom must understand and adapt to the conflicting pressures of modern coastal management.
