CIRIA’s Beach management manual (Ed 2 2010) is widely used in coastal engineering and is one of a number of wider documents relevant to coastal engineering. As with any topic, practices and experience are constantly evolving, as is new evidence and guidance. At this event, members of CIRIA’s Water Advisory panel, which includes a range of CIRIA members and coastal stakeholders, will review recent guidance and current research to update the community.
Delegates at this event will:
- Understand new tools and techniques in beach management
- Hear about progress on a number of important research projects
- Network with other coastal practitioners.
