Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

The Journal of Coastal Conservation has published, The Coastal Hazard Wheel system for coastal multi-hazard assessment & management in a changing climate. The authors write: "The system is designed as a low-tech tool that can be used in areas with limited data availability and institutional capacity and is therefore especially suited for applications in developing countries." You may access the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
