Pre-Conference Workshop

NSW Coastal lakes and lagoons: management and conservation in a changing climate

Many coastal lakes and lagoons alternate between being open or closed to the ocean. These are known as Intermittently Closed and Open Lakes and Lagoons (ICOLLs). About 70 of the coastal lakes and lagoons in NSW are ‘ICOLLs’. In this practitioners workshop we will explore the latest science, community perspectives and government guidance to improve how we manage these dynamic and fragile coastal systems, in the light of past experience, the recent flood disaster and future climatic and non-climatic challenges. The workshop will include specialist talks covering ICOLLs dynamics, water quality, cultural and socio-economic dimensions; practical examples from NSW, with a focus on the North Rivers region; an interactive session to discuss barriers and opportunities to improve integrated management.
