Analysis of End User Needs

NCCARF undertook a comprehensive program of end user engagement and consultation in late 2014 and early 2015. The main components were a national Kick-Off Meeting, a program of regional consultation meetings (reaching around 270 people to date), and an on-line survey (299 responses).

This Report sets out the stakeholder engagement that NCCARF has undertaken in order to understand:

  • the needs of decision makers as they seek to manage the coastal zone under climate variability, climate change and sea-level rise
  • how the Coastal Tool could be designed and implemented to address those needs.

In summarising the outcomes from stakeholder engagement, the Report provides valuable guidance to inform development of the blueprint for the Coastal Tool.
