Effective and consistent coastline management hampered by lack of national policy, funding and agency.
Researchers find impacts of coastal interventions to manage erosion and sand build-up can take years to eventuate.
Understanding link between sand bypassing and large-scale climate drivers key for future coastline management.
More than 200 coastal councils across Australia will be able to better protect themselves against erosion and flooding threats with a new tool that provides them with almost everything they need to prepare for climate change impacts.
Gold Coast residents can tackle climate change head-on by by growing more local plants in their backyard to help mitigate its impact, says Griffith University Professor Catherine Pickering.
