This book aims to discuss contemporary ideas about planning and design for coastal resilience, how our thinking about the coast has changed to be far more dynamic and less stable, and to include a better understanding of the implications of climate change. Specifically, the book articulates what these ideas might mean when these are translated into real places through the examination of specific case studies. It will provide an alternative presentation of the issues and solutions and will examine strategies that work with natural processes to incorporate water into the urban environment, designing places and structures that can accommodate flooding and water storage.
