The Torres Strait Coastal Management Committee (TSCMC) was formed by the TSRA in 2006 to “develop a strategic coordinated approach to dealing with disaster mitigation, coastal erosion, inundation and long-term coastal planning issues in the Torres Strait through collaboration with all parties; with an emphasis on the most severely impacted islands; and to provide a pathway for community members to address coastal issues on their islands.” The TSCMC meets biannually.
