Practical tips for following the IMCORE approach to planning to adapt to coastal climate change

This is to encourage local people and practitioners to understand and learn more about coastal change, understand the wider context better, and to enable all people to participate in coastal decision making.

Education, training, framework
The Coastal Literacy Framework consists of four families of concepts, arranged in a hierarchy of understanding and insight. The four families are: unique coast; coastal change; coastal management (Governance); coastal community well-being and identity.

There are some supporting reports, and information resources to illustrate how the concepts can be communicated.

The Framework has been developed with input from the Manhood Peninsula expert group, and the support of Chichester District Council and the Manhood Peninsula Partnership as part of the UK Government Coastal Change Pathfinder.
