Risk analysis and adaptation pathways

WP6 develops a suite of adaptation models and applies these to simulate baseline adaptation and a risk-based adaptation scenario considering all three generic responses to sea-level rise: protection, accommodation and retreat.

1 To develop  a GIS layer that captures current coastal risk management and adaptation measures in Europe and a database of adaptation policies

2 To segment Europe’s coast into coastal Flood Risk Management Units that are homogenous in terms of adaptation characteristics

3 To develop baseline adaptation models for protection, accommodation and retreat that extend current coastal management and adaptation practise into the future, as well as their impacts on population displacements

4 To develop a risk-based integrative adaptation model that implements optimal combinations of protection, accommodation and retreat measures over time, and assesses their impacts on population displacements

5 To produce a set of risk data layers that combine hazard, vulnerability and exposure layers produced by WPs 4 and 5 with the adaptation models developed here, using risk indicators identified with end-users in WP1
