Reducing Coastal Risks on the East and Gulf Coasts

Economic losses from coastal storms have increased substantially over the past century, largely due to increases in population and development in the most susceptible coastal areas. Climate change poses additional threats to coastal communities from sea level rise and possible increases in the strength of the most intense hurricanes. This report examines coastal risk reduction strategies for the East and Gulf Coasts and principles to guide future investments.
