Sandwatch: adapting to climate change and educating for sustainable development

Source(s):  United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization - France (UNESCO)

This publication aims to evaluate issues and conflicts facing beach environments, develop sustainable approaches to address these issues; and examines ways to address climate change impacts. It addresses: (i) sustainable development issues, and (ii) climate change adaptation issues, such as sea level rise, rising temperatures, ocean acidification and increased extreme events.

It uses an activities-orientated approach to provide step-by-step instructions to cover monitoring methods and data analysis, including observation and recording, erosion and accretion, beach composition, human activities, beach debris, water quality, waves, longshore currents, plants and animals.
