Victorian Coastal Monitoring Program
The Victorian Coastal Monitoring Program started in 2017 to inform spatial prioritisation of monitoring investment effort along Victoria’s coastline and to ensure that data collected is managed centrally and made publicly available.
It will provide communities with information on coastal condition, change, hazards, and the expected impacts associated with climate change that will facilitate evidence-based decision making (i.e. invest in protection and intervention, or adaptation, or retreat). The Program was the recipient of the 2020 Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources Eureka Prize for Innovation in Citizen Science.
