Coastal Zones and Climate Change

Report

Coastal Zones and Climate Change examines the emerging environmental stresses on coastal areas of the Indian Ocean and the resulting challenges confronting coastal planners and decision makers in a warming world. Experts from the region and from Stimson assess the prospective risks to coastal ecosystems and infrastructure, evaluate the opportunities and obstacles for technological innovations and adaptation strategies, and explore how policies and institutions must evolve to ensure the sustainable management of coastal resources and the resilience of coastal communities.

Stimson's Regional Voices: Transnational Challenges project is devoted to enhancing the information and analysis available to policymakers about emerging transnational security challenges in the Middle East, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Africa.
