Abstract
With the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC AR5), climate change has again been identified as an important driver of change. Coasts are particularly vulnerable, directly affected by increasing sea levels and storminess, and other climate drivers, and accentuated by converging indirect landward and seaward influences. Adverse consequences include increased flooding, salinisation, erosion, and wetland and biodiversity loss. Several recent ext...
