X-Keynote panel 4: Coastal management and resilience
Leontine Visser, Wageningen University
Peter Burbridge, University of Newcastle upon Tyne
Edmund C. Penning-Rowsell, Oxford and Middlesex Universities

Coastal management and resilience are the central focus of this final X-keynote panel. Leontine Visser, Wageningen University, reflects upon the first title in the MARE publication series (2004), in which she developed a research agenda for integrated coastal development, promoting integration and transdisciplinarity, and discusses its relevance today. In 2003, Peter Burbridge reviewed the origins of Integrated Coastal Management (ICZM) and explored the progress that had been made in implementing ICZM in Europe. He addresses what is needed for increased effectiveness and sophistication of management tools and processes. Edmund C. Penning-Rowsell (2009) discusses lessons learned from flood risk management in London in terms of the limitations of truly integrated coastal management. This will culminate in a discussion with and between the panelists on the possibilities and limitations of, and alternatives to integration and transdisciplinarity in coastal management and resilience. It will also explore the changing role of the social sciences - its concepts and methods, and its relation to society and other sciences - in grappling with coastal challenges.
