International conference Coastal Management

Date: 24 September 2019 - 26 September 2019
Location: La Rochelle, France

As climate change leads to changing storms and rising sea levels, coastal management is an increasingly salient issue. With half of the world’s population living in a coastal zone, it is vital that engineers, scientists, coastal managers, government and communities work together to find bold solutions to a changing coastline.

ICE’s ninth Coastal Management Conference will look at how new approaches to coastal engineering can integrate with local planning and ‘place-shaping’ to encourage bold and visionary adaptation to coastal change. France has a long, varied coastline that is integral to its economy and identity but which is also exposed to a range of flood and erosion risks that have demanded difficult decisions and bold responses.
