The value of sand dunes in today’s changing climate will be explored by coastal experts at a conference in Tauranga early next year.

The Hon David Parker, the Minister for Climate Change Issues, will be keynote speaker for the event in mid-February. It is being organised by Environment Bay of Plenty for the Dune Restoration Trust of New Zealand, formerly the Coastal Dune Vegetation Network.

Event organiser, Greg Jenks of Coast Care Bay of Plenty, says the four-day conference will involve “a sharing of knowledge” about the sustainable management of New Zealand’s coastal environment. It includes a session by Richard Warrick of the International Global Change Institute on the need for practical coastal management in a time of climate change and sea level rise. Another workshop, by NIWA’s James Goff, will look at the role strong sand dunes play during tsunami events.

A series of field trips will showcase the practical work carried out by community groups to strengthen the Bay of Plenty’s sand dunes.
