Coastal erosion and management

Find out about our studies and initiatives that help to protect and manage Western Australian coasts and infrastructure.

Our role

The Department of Transport (DoT) helps local and state coastal managers protect our environment by providing specialist advice on coastal infrastructure.

We provide advice on:

  • coastal erosion and inundation hazard risk management
  • coastal adaptation and protection
  • climate change factors
  • coastal infrastructure development.

We also deliver the CoastWA program in partnership with Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage.

CoastWA enhances the State's existing coastal funding programs and provides additional support for coastal land managers.

A CoastWA Training Series has been developed to increase understanding of coastal processes and coastal hazard risk management and adaption planning (CHRMAP)
