The challenge for coastal governance is to:

  • engage coastal stakeholders in a share understanding of climate change on the coast and opportunities for adaptation
  • enable broad, meaningful participation in knowledge-based governance of the coast in a rapidly changing context
  • plan for long term impacts of climate change while at the same time having short cycles of review that allow new information to be considered and acted on as it becomes available
