Coastal Research1

Coastal Research To Underpin Sustainable Management, South Coast NSW

The Project

Coastal Research3Coastal planners face a range of issues impacting their environment, from erosion and inundation to flooding and climate change, and must consider appropriate strategies to protect their coastal ecosystems.

This project aims to strengthen the University of Wollongong’s research into coastal issues affecting communities on the South Coast of NSW.

The project will identify existing and future research needs on the South Coast by assessing environmental conditions and engaging with government and agencies in the region.

The collaborative goal is to create a sustainable coastal environment and improve coastal management on the South Coast. 

This project brings together researchers with expertise in social science, coastal management, information systems, geography and engineering.
