This guide sets out how decision-makers in planning and infrastructure investment can work with communities to plan for adaptation to sea level rise and climate change in coastal areas.
Sea levels and the climate are changing, and we are already feeling the effects. The
impacts of sea level rise and climate change are likely to continue for hundreds of years. It
is not possible to predict the precise rate and nature of change that will take place, but we
will all be affected and there are likely to be very significant impacts on future generations.
Coastal communities are particularly vulnerable.
