What is the Cockburn Sound Coastal Alliance?
The Cockburn Sound Coastal Alliance (CSCA) is a partnership between the cities of Cockburn, Fremantle, Kwinana and Rockingham and Perth Region NRM. The CSCA receives support from the Departments of Transport, Planning, Environment and Regulation and the Cockburn Sound Management Council and Department of Defence.
What does the Cockburn Sound Coastal Alliance do?
The CSCA was formed to respond to climate change impacts along the Cockburn Sound coastline, including coastal erosion and inundation. The CSCA recognises that coastal issues are common problems that cross local government boundaries and require integrated and collaborative approaches and solutions, including:
- Building and sharing knowledge relating to the climate change impacts affecting the Owen Anchorage and Cockburn Sound such as sea level rise, erosion and inundation
- Developing strategies to help address climate change impacts
- Developing Coastal Adaptation Plans for its member councils
