A state-wide evaluation was undertaken, identifying priority sites likely to require substantial coastal erosion management in the next 25 years. Fifty-five hotspots were identified as most susceptible, due to either the assets at risk or severity of erosion pressure. In many cases these sites have a long history of repeated coastal management expense.
Desktop assessment was combined with interviews of local coastal managers to determine site issues and characterise coastal dynamics. For each site, preliminary adaptation strategies were identified, with low-cost monitoring and associated triggers for management responses.
