Full text not available from this repository.
This book breaks down primary concepts of coastal vulnerability by providing a thorough discussion of the concept. It addresses coastal vulnerability around the world with specific examples from the Ebro Delta (Spain), the crumbling cliffs of Corton Village/Suffolk (UK), and tsunami-worn Phuket (Thailand/Indian Ocean) as well as others. Ultimately, a framework is established for discussion about global locations and sustaining resilience of coastal areas. An international audience of academics, researchers, students and policy advisors in geography, economics, sociology, and environmental science will benefit from the material presented in "Managing Coastal Vulnerability".
