About this book

Our coasts provide a home and livelihoods for millions of people; many of the world's biggest cities are along coastlines. Yet these precious areas face increasing threats from irresponsible development and the potential dangers of climate change. Coastal Hazards and Vulnerability explores the wide spectrum of coastal hazards, from high-magnitude, low-frequency events like tsunamis and hurricanes, to longer-term processes like urban regeneration and changing agricultural practices.

International case studies range from mitigation measures in the Azores Archipelago to managing a coastal resort in South Wales, to tsunami early warning systems in the Indian Ocean Region. The resulting collection spans approaches from social science, engineering, planning, geology and biology and presents an integrated approach for assessing the impact of, and response to, coastal hazards. It will be of interest to all those involved in strategies for the environmental management of coastlines.

Contents

1. Resilience in the Context of Tsunami Early Warning Systems and Community Disaster Preparedness in the Indian Ocean Region
2. A Review of Coastal Community Vulnerabilities Toward Resilience Benefits from Disaster Reduction Measures
3. Institutional Challenges to Robustness of Flood Plain Agricultural Systems
4. A Multi-scale Coastal Vulnerability Index - a Tool for Coastal Managers?
5. Strategic Regeneration: An Integrated Planning Approach to Managing a Coastal Resort in South Wales
6. Scientific Barriers Towards the Integration of Science-community-policymaking in Managing Coastal Hazards: Some Reflections on Learning from the SPICOSA Project
