CoastSwaP Case Studies 2017

From 2014 – 2016 CoastSwaP ran a series of annual sub-regional stakeholder forums between Mandurah and Walpole (see forums page here). The information gained from these forums was not only valuable to those who attended, but also to other stakeholders  in the broader network and SW region. Therefore CoastSwaP  successfully applied for funding from the Australian Government’s 25th Anniversary Landcare Grants program in 2015 to develop a series of case studies based on key topics identified from the forums.

This included information on successful programs, projects and methods developed by stakeholders that have improved the efficiency and effectiveness of their coastal management work, such as; revegetation using spinifex, brushing techniques and calculation, volunteer ranger programs, coastal condition assessments and our stakeholder forums. Other case study topics include snapshots of the WA Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Planning (CHRMAP) framework, and the status of coastcare and coastal management in the Peel Harvey and South West regions.

It is hoped that these Case Studies will help to inspire and encourage coastal managers to; implement similar successful projects where suitable, engage and share further information with stakeholders and work together to address priority issues. What we affectionately term as ‘popping the bubbles and filling the gaps’!
