The aim of this study is to advance the development and analysis of improved long-term coastal adaptation strategies under conditions of uncertainty. This will help manage coastal risks by improving the management of infrastructure and land use in vulnerable coastal communities. Improved management will reduce the direct and indirect damages caused by increased extreme events and losses from permanent inundation. Including social risk perceptions and values will be an important consideration in formulating the approach.

Coastal risks arise from a combination of hazards, community exposure and vulnerability. Often deterministic and stochastic assumptions are used to describe changing hazards over multidecadal time horizons. This can guide impact analysis and the selection of adaptation policies.

Identifying risk thresholds in coastal communities to inform adaptation planning


The impact of changing coastal inundation hazards to people and property becomes increasingly uncertain across multi-decadal timeframes. Identifying 'thresholds' can better inform long-term coastal adaptation planning at local, state and national scales.
