Webinar: Empowering coastal resilience planning
Climate changes are spurring noticeable challenges in coastal zones around the world including more frequent extreme weather events that are exposing the vulnerabilities of coastal communities. Despite advanced coastal engineering and the science of coastal processes available today, more nearshore developments continue to be built without a true understanding of how they could be impacted by coastal erosion and flooding.

It’s time to act and implement real measures to combat coastal instability and flooding. At its core, climate-change mitigation and adaptation starts with a basic understanding of the coastal area and the engineering possibilities within. For a community to be considered resilient, they must be well equipped to prevent a short-term hazard event from turning into a long-term community-wide disaster.

At DHI, we strive to share our knowledge of coastal processes as the foundation for the sustainable planning of human activities along the coasts. By attending this free 45-minute webinar, including a live Q&A session, you’ll learn about the basics of coastal processes to make more informed decisions regarding shoreline management.

Topics
• How to classify a coast
• Planning concepts in the coastal zone
• Coastal adaptation to climate changes
• Hydraulic study methodology as support for shoreline management
• Why coastal resilience should be prioritized
• Introduction to DHI’s online course on shoreline management
