The Bermuda Government Department of Planning contracted SWIL to carry out a study of coastal erosion in Bermuda, in order to identify those areas around the island most at risk for erosion, and to develop policies for protecting the coast accordingly. Specifically, a synthesis of the data that already exists in Bermuda about coastal erosion; a determination of which coastal areas in Bermuda are prone to erosion and which structures and landforms are most at risk; recommendations of best practices for coastal development and conservation.

SWIL conducted site reconnaissance, existing data collection and review;  definition of hurricane and storm susceptibility; shoreline process modeling; coastal erosion and risk map preparation; ground-truthing site visit; preparation of coastal development guidelines; seminar: coastal development guidelines; final report preparation.
