About this book

Sustainable Coastal Management and Climate Adaptation: Global Lessons from Regional Approaches in Australia offers an examination of the evolving of coastal adaptation, both internationally and in Australia, from a perspective that critically addresses the knowledge-governance interface and its sociocultural context.

The authors analyze contemporary epistemologies and their contribution to new practices. This unique but highly contemporary constellation of issues will enable scientists and other professionals to reflect critically on the failures and successes in implementation and generate new recommendations. It positions Sustainable Coastal Management and Climate Adaptation: Global Lessons from Regional Approaches in Australia at the cutting-edge of coastal adaptation praxis.
