Brief description Australia's coastline is one of this country's greatest natural, economic and cultural resources. The asset value of existing beach-front infrastructure is immeasurable. Climate change is driving sea-level rise and changing regional wave climates, resulting in coastal erosion and increasing the threat to coastal sustainability. This research launches a strategic university-industry-government alliance to address the considerable and growing pressure for solutions to observe and forecast accelerating shoreline erosion. The new knowledge, greater cross-sector collaboration and international linkages to be fast-tracked by this project will inform and build the capacity of Australia's coastal managers to confront the challenges of a changing climate.
