To assist in understanding and adapting to climate change, Bundaberg Regional Council is developing a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (CHAS) for its 110km of coastline. The CHAS will look at hazards such as coastal erosion, storm tide inundation and sea level rise and the potential impacts on the community, infrastructure and the environment.

Bundaberg Region Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy

Many coastal communities face coastal erosion and inundation risks. We are already experiencing erosion problems across the Bundaberg region including Woodgate, Moore Park Beach and Miara. It is anticipated that projected sea level rise and more intense storms from a changing climate may increase and extend these risks to areas currently at low or no risk. . These effects have the potential to impact the livelihoods and lifestyles of coastal residents and the natural environment. Decisions and a...
