Module 1: Coastal processes and how they affect shorelines
Coastal processes refer to the natural forces that shape the coastline and its adjacent areas. These processes are driven by a combination of factors including waves, water levels, currents and winds.
Module 2: Coastal protection works
Coastal protection works are permanent or period works which aim to alter physical coastal processes or manage coastal hazards. They typically protect assets from the action of the ocean, including coastal erosion and coastal inundation.
Module 3: Benefit distribution analysis
Benefit distribution analysis can assist with apportioning the costs (capital and recurrent costs) for implementing coastal protection works, based on the beneficiary pays principle.
