Research Themes

Researchers will look at the most effective ways of communicating between groups such as scientists, planners and other decision-makers, and will work with these groups to improve coastal planning.

As part of the process, the research partners will gather information from a variety of sources including scientists, local government authorities, state governments, non-government organisations, Indigenous leaders and the community. Workshops, surveys and interviews will ensure the research incorporates a wide range of stakeholder perspectives, experiences and knowledge. The partners will undertake research in different locations on complementary themes. They will pool their information to generate a big-picture result. The results will be published on a website for everyone to use, including the public, coastal stakeholders and scientists.
