INTEGRATED COASTAL MANAGEMENT

eCoast’s consultants are experts at understanding and quantifying the forces that act to shape the world’s coastlines.

Integrated coastal management and beach protection strategies need to be developed from a strong foundation of the existing coastal processes for a particular site.  The coast is an incredibly complex and dynamic area. The requirement for an accurate assessment of coastal processes is imperative for social and economic stability, as well as sustainable development.

eCoast believes developing hybrid solutions and plans that incorporate the management of resources from above the high tide line to well beyond the breaker zone and beyond the immediate area is fundamental to success.

eCoast’s holistic approach is essential in developing a thorough understanding. Our approach facilitates comprehensive studies from which rational conclusions are derived. This provides clients with the information required for conscientious decision making.
