Coastal Storm Risk Management

Welcome

This Coastal Storm Risk Management Manual will assist planners and economists in applying policy in a practical manner. It replaces the 1991 manual, updating practice to a life-cycle approach as well as risk-informed decision making. It reviews the Corps planning process, describes basic coastal processes and coastal engineering principles and models used in evaluating storm and long-term erosion, and then presents a discussion of NED benefits and costs as they relate to coastal storm risk management. The manual also presents a framework for economic analysis of coastal projects and includes appendices with definitions of key coastal and planning terms.

This manual is primarily designed for economists responsible for preparing economic analyses of USACE coastal storm risk management projects. Audiences for the manual include economists, planners, project managers, hydrologists, hydraulic engineers and others involved in shore protection or coastal storm damage issues. They must be able to understand and explain the process of benefit calculation and determine which alternatives are promising enough to carry on to subsequent planning phases.
