Costs and benefits of adapting to climate change at six meters below sea level

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paper

Abstract

Climate change increases the vulnerability of low-lying coastal areas. Careful spatial planning can reduce this vulnerability. An assessment framework aimed at reducing vulnerability to climate change enables decision-makers to make better informed decisions about investments in adaptation to climate change through spatial planning. This paper presents and evaluates an approach to assess adaptation options, with the use of cost-benefit analysis.
