The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) has published an article discussing the causes and effects of coastal erosion in East Anglia, one of the regions with the highest erosion rates in the UK and Europe.

The article introduces the Resilient Coasts Project, a DEFRA-funded initiative that utilises innovative and proactive approaches to coastal management, highlighting the project’s goals, work packages, pilot sites, and engagement methods. It also encourages professionals such as designers, engineers, and entrepreneurs to submit creative solutions to inform coastal adaptation plans.

The article focuses on the Hemsby case study, a small village on the Norfolk coast that has been severely affected by erosion and has lost properties. It explains how an emergency revetment was constructed to safeguard the remaining dunes and buy time for the community.
