Despite the massive advancements in both the fields of coastal science and management, there is the generalised agreement that the track between coastal geomorphology (and science at large) and management are still struggling to converge to provide significant sound basis to managers and decision making when it comes to complex scenarios in policy, environment and management. Many methods have been developed to try and close this gap and provide tools for integrative approaches to coastal science and management. In this paper, the authors review a number of tools and techniques that have been trialled in various research projects at European, National and Regional levels. Lessons learnt highlight that (i) synthetic tools (Environmental Indicators and Land and Ecosystem Accounts) are severely complex, data hungry and do not respond well to spatialisation and (ii) modelling tools (wave propagation for shallow waters and Future Scenarios) often require highly specialised implementation and its interpretation is not potentially at the level of decision makers and other stake holders involved in the wide spectrum of coastal management issues.
