Abstract
Most developed coasts in the Mediterranean show a high level of pressures and conflicts under present climate and socio-economic conditions. This result in a high exposure and low adaptive capacity leading to high risk levels that will get aggravated under future sea-level rise projections. In this work we shall assess the impact of sea-level rise on available beach area and combine these analyses with socio-economic indicators (population density, GDP and number of tourist places available).
