The sociocultural and environmental dimensions of adapting to climate change
in coastal regions and beyond take centre stage in this edited volume.
Scientists from an interdisciplinary background address questions of how to cope with
the challenge of climate change in different contexts. The book highlights aspects of
coastal adaptation, response strategies, and factors for success at regional and local levels.A changing climate not only affects the natural world. Social aspects both are affected by and cause climate change, so need to be considered in adapting to it. Being key factors in creating and solving the challenges of climate change, end users, decision makers and local residents need to be encouraged to take action and adapt.
