Victorian Coastal Hazard Guide

The Victorian Coastal Hazard Guide is now available. The Guide is intended to improve understanding of coastal hazards such as inundation and erosion and the effects of climate change on these hazards. It also supports organisations which are responsible for making decisions about managing coastal land and assets to manage the risks posed by coastal hazards. It does this by providing a risk-based approach for incorporating coastal hazards and climate change into the decision making processes associated with managing coastal areas; and promoting the use of adaptive management and response options to improve adaptive capacity.

While the information in the Guide is generally technical in nature, no scientific or technical training is required to use it.
