"Good Practice Guide": Advice on coastal risk reduction
For advice on how to manage and reduce coastal risks, see the publication
'Responding to the Risks from Climate Change in Coastal Zones: A Good Practice Guide'.
The Good Practice Guide provides advice and guidance on sustainable coastal risk
management for local and regional authorities responsible for managing natural hazards at the coast. The publication describes the physical processes of
coastal change and considers the influence of human settlements
and coastal defence structures. It includes an account of the
nature and scale of coastal risks and current frameworks for
monitoring, assessing and managing of coastal risks. The guide
highlights state-of-the-art examples of good practice in risk
reduction from around Europe.
The Good Practice Guide considers the impacts of climate change
and provides advice on integrating coastal risk mapping into the
planning system, through the use of planning policy guidance. A
further topic that is addressed is the issue of engaging the local
community in risk management and promoting a co-ordinated
response to coastal risks.
