Coastal Hazard Adaptation
Our Resilient Gulf
FINAL REPORT - Now available
Council and the consultants have now concluded all 8 phases of the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy and the final report is available on the Council website below.
As part of the process Council has undertaken a series of investigations to inform short and long-term management of the coastal zone, and how we can enhance resilience and adapt to changing coastal hazards.
Coastal hazards include erosion of sandy coastlines, and short or long-term seawater inundation of low-lying areas. Coastal hazards in the Gulf are typically associated with storms, tropical cyclones, and long-term sea-level rise.
Council received funding from the Queensland Government program QCoast2100 for a program of work to inform coastal hazard adaptation initiatives, including:
Phase 1: Developing a stakeholder engagement and communication strategy
Phase 2: Completing a scoping study
Phase 3: Mapping of coastal hazard areas (present day to 2100)
Phase 4: Collating values and assets, and assessing exposure to coastal hazards
Phase 5: Assessing coastal hazard risk to assets and values
Phase 6: Exploring the range of adaptation options and initiatives
Phase 7: Socio-economic assessment of adaptation options
Phase 8: Development, implementation and review of the Shire-wide STrategy.
