Sea level rise and the coast
As sea levels rise and we experience the effects of climate change, we are starting to look at new ways of managing the coast, moving away from the solid flood defence structures that have previously protected our coast and estuaries.
Managing climate change on the coast will require us to work with natural processes to ensure that rising sea levels and storm surges can be accommodated.
Planning for climate change needs to start today if we are going to meet the challenges of the future. This is particularly apparent on the coast where erosion and sea level rise will affect a large number of people and businesses over the long term.
