MyCoast NSW Study

The MyCoast NSW Study was undertaken by UNSW in partnership with the Sydney Coastal Councils Group and NSW Surf Life Saving, and funded through the joint State and Commonwealth Natural Disaster Resilience Program.

The MyCoast NSW Study explores what the New South Wales community understands about coastal erosion and coastal inundation, as well as the driving forces behind these hazards: sea level rise and severe coastal storms.

The Final Study Report, Factsheets and a Teachers Guide can be accessed from the SCCG Resources page.

Coastal Management – Delegation visits SCCG

On 4th October 2018, SCCG welcomed a delegation from India; including Suresh Chandra Mahapatra and Prasanta Kumar Panigraphy from the Government of Odisha, and Anuja Sukhla from IPE Global Ltd.  The delegation met with the SCCG to discuss coastal management in NSW, coastal processes, challenges local councils face in finding solutions to sustainable manage the coast and in sharing of costs to undertake works. The delegation shared information about their community, largely fisherman as stakeholders that are dependent on the coast for their livelihood.

The delegation also undertook a site visit to Collaroy/Narrabeen led by Craig Morrison from Northern Beaches Council, which provided firsthand experience of the beach and coastal hazards and management challenges faced by a local council and its community.
