About this book

This book presents and discusses a strategy which includes four approaches to dealing with the risk of sea-level rise and other water hazards. It also offers opportunities for cities to explore urban extensions such as marine estates, aquatic food production systems, new sea related industries, maritime transport developments, new oceanic tourist attractions, and the designation of additional coastal ecological zones. The urban interface between Sea and Cities generates, therefore, both burning issues and valuable opportunities and raises the question of whether it is possible to solve the former by exploiting the latter?

About the authors

Prof. Joerg Baumeister was the previous Director of the Australian Urban Design Research Centre, UWA, and has attracted more than $2 M in industry grants in the last three years for multi-disciplinary projects with government institutions in WA, e.g. about “Perth Water” and “Shoreline development” which have been published in books, government reports and journal articles.

Prof. Paul Burton has a long-standing interest in the theory and practice of public policy-making, with a special interest in planning and urban policy. He is currently exploring the emergence of a national urban policy in Australia and the translation of urban policy ideas from elsewhere – such as the UK’s City Deals approach – to Australian settings. 

Dr. Edoardo Bertone is a Researcher with a civil engineering background and a current focus on data-driven modelling, Bayesian Network and System Dynamics modelling applied to the water resources management, water-energy nexus, environmental health and climate change adaptation fields.
