An international conference for researchers and practitioners
"Adapting to global change at the coast: Leadership, Innovation, and Investment"
Organised by CoastNet, Eurocoast and EUCC and held at the Royal Geographical Society, London, 21st to 23rd September 2010
Across the world coasts are dynamic and ever-changing. In recent years an improved understanding of natural processes has generated new concepts in the management of coastal landforms, water bodies and ecosystems. But we must not overlook social and economic changes, which are just as important in providing the context for sustainable management. Indeed 'global change' is as much about the globalisation of the economy and society as it is about global environmental change.
