Victoria’s coastal communities, local decision-makers and government agencies have limited access to information needed to plan for and implement nature-based risk reduction and adaptation projects. Yet, TNC is uniquely positioned to apply its many years of international experience in risk reduction, tool development and demonstration projects, to support  the mainstream the use of nature-based approaches in Victoria.

This project is investigating the application of The Nature Conservancy’s global coastal risk reduction and climate change mitigation framework and decision support tools to local coastal risk problems in Port Phillip Bay to positively influence the future of coastal management in Victoria through nature-based risk reduction.
