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. In this context, it highlights community knowledge, perceptions, values and attitudes of NSW coastal communities in relation to ‘their coast’ and key themes related to associated management issues and strategies.
The purpose of the MyCoast NSW Study was to provide an evidence-based platform that will assist local governments and coastal management professionals in the future development of suitable and effective educational strategies and programs to help improve the ability of NSW coastal communities to adapt sustainably to the risk of coastal erosion and inundation.

Sydney Coastal Councils Group engaged Janellis to develop an Emergency Management Health Check Tool for Local Government, with funding provided by the Office of Emergency Management.
The online Tool, providing reports to councils on completion, can be accessed at www.emhealthcheck.com.au
A hard copy offline version (no reports provided on completion) can be downloaded.
Sydney Coastal Councils Group engaged Janellis to develop an emergency management health check tool for local government, to assist councils in assessing their capability and preparedness in emergency management. On completion of the online version of the Health Check Tool Councils are provided with summary reports showing areas of high capability and areas for improvement.
