This volume presents the proceedings of the fourth in a series of highly successful conferences. Coastal management issues covered in the volume include planning and implementation, economic evaluation, the contribution of technology, legal and geomorphic impacts, and the increasingly important subjects of managing risk and uncertainty. Themes that are of particular interest for the future are discussed, including the UK s flood defence aims, objectives and targets, and the need or otherwise for a European directive for coastal management.

Contractors involved in construction in, or adjacent to, rivers and estuaries are open to a range of construction risks from working in this environment. Not only the primary risk of flooding, but significant risk also stems from scour, poor ground conditions, site drainage, plant operation, site access and tidal impact. The construction works themselves may also have an impact on the river including impact on flood water levels, changes to the local river regime, scour or siltation and effects on navigation and environmental impacts such as pollution. This Manual assists in identifying and managing risks in works design and construction. Guidance is offered on risk assessment and management techniques, along with the identification of typical risk issues likely to be encountered in the river and estuary environment. It is essential reading for clients, project funders, contractors, consulting engineers (both in design and supervision role), insurers and those interested with the risks associated with river and estuary engineering.

The construction of coastal defences has allowed many people to live and work in safety in areas of the United Kingdom that would otherwise have been lost to the sea. However, building and maintaining such defences is a difficult and expensive undertaking, with inevitable consequences for the environment. In rural areas, some existing defences have been abandoned and, given the predicted effects of global warming, this policy may be extended in the future. This guide explains how shorelines can be managed in a cost-effective and environmentally acceptable manner, and includes guidance on the design, construction and maintenance of coastal defences.
