Beskrivelse

The two-year project will initiate a move forward to address the adaptation needs of small coastal communities by providing focused input to the four steps needed for such progress identified in Major & Juhola (2016) who provide a robust framework to which the proposed research will make significant contributions. These steps include: First, estimates of the number of small coastal towns and cities worldwide likely to be impacted by climate change, and their types and characteristics. Second, initial estimates of costs for adaptation for these settlements. Third, focused, practical adaptation guidance for small coastal settlements. Fourth, guidance for national and external funding agencies (including NGOs).
While the first part intends worldwide coverage, the main initial geographical focus of the research in steps two to four identified above will be on Nordic communities and conditions with a particular emphasis on Northern Denmark as well as regions in other Nordic countries, e.g. Finland and Norway. In addition, the project will build on project members' previous work, networks and experience and thereby feature additional Scottish cases. The team will also collaborate with other UCCRN (Urban Climate Change Research Network) scholars from around the world and along the way attract further national, Nordic and EU funding to expand the geographical coverage.
