Climate Change and Environmental Impacts on Coastal Communities


Inquiry into Climate Change and Environmental Impacts on Coastal Communities

This report by an Australian House of Representatives committee on climate change spells out policy options available to coastal communities in addressing sea level rise: protect, redesign, rebuild, elevate, relocate, or retreat.  The report describes the uncertainties local planning councils will face in deciding which policy would apply best in each circumstance.  Individual chapters may be downloaded for convenience.
