Coastal environments are always changing and being shaped by wind, tides and currents and changing sea levels. Impacts from these natural processes include storm tide inundation, coastal erosion and sea level rise. Referred to as coastal hazards, they can affect our region’s natural and built environment, our day to day lives, our community’s wellbeing and our economy.
The Our Living Coast Strategy provides an understanding of how our coast is being affected by coastal hazards (coastal erosion, storm tide inundation, and sea level rise) today and how our coast might change in the future under the influence of climate change, including the impacts of sea level rise. The Strategy has been prepared using funding provided through the QCoast2100 program.
