Name: Phil Dyke
Job: Coast and Marine Adviser, National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland
Who are you?
I’m the Trust’s Coast and Marine Adviser, working across England, Wales and Northern Ireland advising on coastal change (linked to sea level rise) and coastal and inshore marine conservation and governance.
What’s your specialist subject?
Coastal Change (increased erosion and flooding) and adaptation in response to sea level rise.
What’s the best thing about your job?
The mix of people I work with; Trust colleagues and communities at specific places, partners in other non-governmental organisations, agencies and government.
What are you talking about?
Coastal change and adaptabilty – something of the science and uncertainty linked to sea level rise, the Trust’s approach based on natural processes and illustrated through case studies from around the coast. And I am really looking forward to learning more about the experience of other Trusts around the world.
