Coastal cities are increasingly exposed to specific problems for sustainability which are not found anywhere else. The interface between land and water is among the most ecologically productive areas on earth and, at the same time, is most densely populated. This combination of high ecological value and concentration of human inhabitants means that coastal habitats provide a significant portion of the ecosystems goods and services used by society, such as food and hazard protection. Coastal cities are, however, also among the most vulnerable places on earth due to both human manipulations (such as urbanization) and ongoing global environmental changes (such as climate change). As a result, many millions of people are going to live increasingly at risk. Against this background, researchers at LUCSUS look into how society can continue to live sustainably along the coast in an age of increasing floods, sea level rise, storm intensity and growing global inequality.
Research themes and projects
Different research themes and projects are linked under the Sustainable Coastal Planning and Management Program. These include:
- Coastal climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction (see related websites & PhD project)
- Coastal ecosystem-based adaptation (see related websites)
- Sustainable ecosystem management (see two related websites & PhD project)
- Empowerment of coastal communities (see related website & PhD project).
