Integrated beach management in large coastal cities. A review

Abstract : Beaches are attractive areas that are subject to multiple pressures. Some of these beaches are located in large coastal cities with which they interact on a physical and social level. Facing this particularity, we propose a state of knowledge dedicated to the management of beaches in large coastal cities, here defined as cities with more than 500,000 inhabitants. Using the WoS and an analysis grid, 53 articles were identified and studied. This analysis shows that these beaches at the interface of a large coastal city are mainly the subject of sectorial studies and that the interactions between the city and the beach are relatively little studied. In this context, this article aims to highlight the need to develop integrated management model specific to beaches located in large cities.
