ACCARNSI Research Associate, Dan Ware from Griffith University and Dr Zsuzsa Banhalmi-Zakar from James Cook University Townsville discuss the financing options of coastal protection in Australia using three existing case studies - the Tweed River Entrance Sand Bypass Project, the City of Gold Coast A-Line Seawall and the Toogoom Seawall, presenting the rationale, the basic project parameters and the different approaches to funding each project took. They compare funding features and outcomes achieved for each project as well as discussing the implications for coastal protection funding in the future.
