National Coastal Development Guidelines, Bermuda

Challenge

The Bermuda Government Department of Planning contracted SWIL to carry out a study of coastal erosion in Bermuda, in order to identify those areas around the island most at risk for erosion, and to develop policies for protecting the coast accordingly. Specifically, a synthesis of the data that already exists in Bermuda about coastal erosion; a determination of which coastal areas in Bermuda are prone to erosion and which structures and landforms are most at risk; recommendations of best practices for coastal development and conservation.
