Adapting to Climate Change in the Coastal Zone in Western Australia: Meanings, Dimensions, Effectiveness and Shortfalls of Collaborative Coastal Adaptation Planning
MetadataShow full item record
The present study explores the features of and key challenges to collaborative coastal adaptation planning in Western Australia through a multiple case study approach. A set of governance principles is collated from the literature and then tested through in-depth interviews, workshops and participant observations in the case studies. The results are then used to further refine a set of principles of good governance specifically aimed at guiding a collaborative approach to coastal adaptation planning.
