Debate on coastal protection
The Assembly unanimously supported a report by the Environment and Sustainability Committee which states that coastal erosion is one of the biggest natural hazard risks affecting the safety and sustainability of communities.
The chair of the committee during the inquiry, William Powell, said he was pleased that the Welsh government had accepted nine of the eleven recommendations in full and accepted the other two in principle.
The Environment Minister, John Griffiths, said managing coastal erosion was a high priority for the Welsh Government.
The eleven recommendations fitted closely with current policy, he added.
Mr. Griffiths' also said that work on implementing them was already underway.
The minister told AMs that the risks of coastal erosion and flooding couldn't be eradicated but he added that they could be reduced and how public bodies respond to them could be improved.
Flooding is more of an immediate threat to the population, as was seen by the flooding in parts of mid-Wales in 2012, but coastal erosion remains a long-term threat.
The government's national flooding strategy released in November 2011 contains objectives to reduce the risk of erosion in Wales.
One objective is to hold regular reviews of risk, of which the committee's report is one.
When launching the strategy, Environment Minister John Griffiths said that climate change would increase the risk of flooding and coastal erosion due to higher rainfall and rising sea levels.
He said: "The consequences of that flooding will see greater risks to life, the economy and the environment."
