Over the years, processes of coastal erosion and sea flooding have resulted in waste from some sites being deposited on the foreshore or seeping into the coastal and marine environment, potentially resulting in a range of issues. These are likely to be experienced more frequently as a consequence of the effects of climate change, especially sea level rise.

This is an emerging issue and to date there has been limited experience of dealing with such issues from identification through to solution. This guide has been produced to help the increasing number of professionals who will come across such issues for the first time. It is aimed at the interface between the well-established industries of waste management, pollution prevention and control, and flood and coastal erosion risk management.
