Dynamic Equilibrium and Stakeholders
Dynamic equilibrium- This is a balanced state of system when the input and output are equal.
Stakeholders- Individuals, groups or organisations that have an interest in a development or project. They can be involved financially or emotionally
Coastal Squeeze and land reclamation
Coastal squeeze- It is a process where habitats and natural features which are caught between coastal defences and rising sea levels are lost or drowned
Land reclamation- It is the process where land can be improved or made available for a use.
Advance the line- This strategy is where the defence is moved further into the sea
Do nothing- This strategy is where nothing is done apart from safety measures
Hold the line- This strategy is where the defence is kept where it is
Retreat the line- This strategy is where in a managed way the movement of the shoreline is inwards.
