Australasian Coasts & Ports Conference 2015: 22nd Australasian Coastal and Ocean Engineering Conference and the 15th Australasian Port and Harbour Conference
The Coasts and Ports 2015 Conference was an amalgamation of the 22nd Australasian Coastal and Ocean Engineering Conference and the 15th Australasian Port and Harbour Conference. Coasts & Ports 2015 brought together engineers, planners, scientists, stakeholders and researchers to focus on the technological, scientific, policy, planning and design issues related to our diverse and developing coasts.
The theme for the conference was 'Environomics. Environment and economics - can we have both?' The idea behind this theme is the balancing act between protecting and preserving the environment and achieving economic growth and prosperity. How can investors, regulators and the public develop a win-win strategy? What is the appropriate balance of protecting against future climate change scenarios while enabling societies to benefit from their locations?
