    Coastal planning involves examining the social, economic and environmental considerations that affect the Australian coastal zone. Population growth, demographic change, infrastructure demands and climate change are key issues that will be discussed in the unit. Community engagement in that process of coastal planning will also be addressed. The theory of integrated coastal management together with leading practice in implementation will be further explored. The catchment to coast to marine continuum will underpin the unit learning outcomes.

    Learning Outcomes

    1. Demonstrate an understanding of the climate change risk assessments for the Australian coast and the possible consequences for coastal communities; and
