The aim of the “Problem Shared” workshop series is to share best practice and to assist operating authorities with basic skills development.

Experienced coastal engineers and contractors are invited to share their in-depth knowledge and understanding with those new to the industry.

The aim of the field trip is for experienced coastal engineers and contractors to share their in-depth knowledge with the elected members of SCOPAC to raise awareness of issues associated with the coastline.

Since 2010, fieldtrips have focused on the following sites along the SCOPAC coastline:
