Coastal zone management is a constantly evolving challenge. Civil engineers and coastal professionals are under increasing pressure to manage the competing interests of environmental protection, population growth and the impacts of climate change. It’s essential to keep abreast of the latest research and techniques available to achieve this.
As part of the ICE Knowledge Water Programme 2019, over 200 coastal management professionals will join forces in La Rochelle to focus on new approaches to coastal engineering that integrate planning and ‘place-shaping.’ This year, there’s a huge focus on encouraging bold adaptation to coastal change whilst also balancing environmental and community concerns.
New for the 2019 edition of the conference is the half-day technical visit to La Faute Sur Mer on 26 September, which is included as part of the conference experience, offering delegates the opportunity to learn about France’s most recent major coastal flooding event, Storm Xynthia, and its impact in areas surrounding La Rochelle. The storm claimed a number of lives and caused hundreds of millions of Euros damage.
