This book breaks down primary concepts of coastal vulnerability by providing a thorough discussion of the concept. It addresses coastal vulnerability around the world with specific examples from the Ebro Delta (Spain), the crumbling cliffs of Corton Village/Suffolk (UK), and tsunami-worn Phuket (Thailand/Indian Ocean) as well as others. Ultimately, a framework is established for discussion about global locations and sustaining resilience of coastal areas.
...timely in context...the book expands exactly on those two concepts, Vulnerability and Management, which have also been identified as the guiding framework questions in the global LOICZ research project for the next decade. The authors provide a substantial contribution to the LOICZ objective...The book is particularly valuable because its perspectives are truly global in nature, encompassing different views from the developed world as well as from developing economies. Hartwig Kremer, CEO LOICZ IPO, Germany
