This paper demonstrates how the study of coastal geomorphology can provide a valuable understanding that might form a basis from which planners can develop sound proposals and policies for the sustainable development and management of the coastal region and its resources. The paper is based on work carried out in the mid 1980s as part of a multi-disciplinary research project which aimed to establish an environmental database for the coastal region of Kuwait. The geomorphological information was used to determine the coastal vulnerability and to assess the environmental impacts of development projects
