NSW Coastal Management Manual Part C: Coastal Management Toolkit - Funding mechanisms to implement coastal management actions: Guidance for local councils

The coastal management manual (the manual), specifically Part B Stage 3, sets out the process for councils to follow in identifying and evaluating potential actions to be included in a coastal management program (CMP). The steps in Stage 3 include cost–benefit analysis (CBA), distributional analysis to determine how the cost and benefits flow to different parties, and the identification of appropriate funding and financing mechanisms to enable cost sharing between the relevant parties.

This guide provides further detail on the identification and use of funding mechanisms, and additional information on financing mechanisms. It should be read in conjunction with Section 3.8 and 3.9 of the manual.
