Lessons from regional approaches to coastal management in Australia: a synthesis

Chapter


Abstract


  • This synthesis reflects on the ways in which multiple viewpoints and knowledge types, including

    biophysical and socioeconomic science, lay, managerial and Indigenous knowledge, can be

    used by stakeholders and decision-makers seeking to achieve coastal sustainability in Australia.

    It draws primarily on a review of coastal management across Australia, international

    experience in coastal management and four Australian regional studies of coastal management

    Derwent and Huon estuaries in Tasmania; South-east Queensland (SEQ); Ningaloo in

    Western Australia; and the Great Barrier Reef. The regional studies present a range of contexts

    for the management of the tensions among social, cultural, ecological and economic attributes

    and uses of the coast. These tensions are longstanding but have become more urgent in the

    context of addressing the expected effects of climate change.
