Governance of climate change adaptation and risk management

Sea-level rise represents one of the main impacts of climate change. Globally, low elevation coastal areas represent 2% of the surface area, but account for 10% of the world's population and many of the economic assets and infrastructures. Moreover, the increase in sea level causes extreme values occur more frequently, affecting the exposed communities and assets (environmental and economic) more severely. This also generates an increase in the erosion rate, increasing the recoil of the coastline, which in turn makes the coastal and active resources located there much more exposed. In this context, it is essential to understand current and future risks and a number of studies show the need to adapt the format of the information to the agents who need to make decisions on adaptation.
