Postcards from the Edge - Adapting to our changing coast

Read the Report

This report compiles reflections, or ‘postcards’, from coastal flood and erosion practitioners to offer different geographical and thematic perspectives from Britain’s coast, alongside some international perspectives.

CIWEM’s Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management specialist panel have analysed these reflections to answer the question ‘How do we realistically adapt to rising sea levels, coastal erosion and squeeze, and intensifying coastal storms?’
