The South West Region is characterised by its diverse and intriguing coastline. However with Climate Change inevitable, we must plan to protect the natural and built environment. Planning for this change is often difficult, complex, costly and can be emotionally charged. In this seminar we aim to set out ideas, the latest research and practical examples of how to deal with this climate change driven topic.
