Kangaroo Island Coastal Hazard Mapping Project

Kangaroo Island Coastal Hazards Mapping Project

Climate change and sea level rise are some of the largest issues facing all levels of Government in Australia today. Kangaroo Island Council acknowledge this challenge and identified the need for a means to communicate the issues to the community, stakeholders and politicians. 

The focus on coastal hazards associated with current and projected sea level rise aligns with the outcomes of the Resilient Hills and Coasts (RH&C) Regional Climate Change Adaptation Plan, which identified built coastal assets as one of four priority areas of adaptation on Kangaroo Island.

What is the Kangaroo Island Online Mapping Tool?

The Online Mapping Tool is a means to provide the community, stakeholders and politicians with information and power to make informed decisions by providing information on potential risks to start the conversation on how and when we respond. 

The purpose of this tool is to see what areas may be subject to inundation, and to identify those areas where we need to better understand the extent of the effects of inundation.

For further detail on how the mapping tool has been developed see the Technical Report.
