A study was conducted at Kingston Beach, Tasmania, comparing ‘lived values’ and ‘landscape values mapping’ approaches to understand the social risks of sea-level rise. The study pinpointed a number of important social values and was able to identify groupings of community members that might be impacted differently by adaptation measures or failure to adapt. The study considered whether either or both approaches were likely to meet the local adaptation planning needs of the council.
