A Strategy for Long Term Planning and Management of the Shoreline in the Context
of Climate Change Predictions.
The key aims of the research project were to:
Derive climate change scenarios for the next eighty years;
Develop an understanding of the generic impacts of climate change on the coast;
Determine vulnerability, hazard and risk along the SCOPAC coast;
Identify requirements for informing coastal planning and management of climate change
Identify future good practice for coastal management.
A two-stage approach was taken. The first involved identification of future climate
scenarios and their likely physical impacts on the coast, and the second assessed
the implications of these for assets and coastal risk management.
