Coastal Management

Around 85% of Australia’s population lives within 50km of the coast, alongside a significant proportion of key assets and infrastructure. Yet coastal communities are exposed to a range of natural hazards that naturally occur in these zones and that can cause severe damage.

Applied research to improve our characterisation of hazards such as storm surge and tsunami supports the evidence base required to manage these risks appropriately and sustainably. Ultimately, the outcomes of the projects in the coastal management cluster will strengthen our national capability to make informed decisions for an improved resilience of coastal communities and infrastructure.
