Climate change coastal regions and local early warning 

Prof. Dilanthi Amaratunga of the Global Disaster Resilience Centre, University of Huddersfield, recently contributed an article to the RICS Land Journal on how climate change affects coastal regions. The article briefly discusses the evidence of coastal climate change and examines some of the physical, social, economic, environmental and built environment impacts. In local dissemination of Tsunami early warning, it is imperative to look at the issues in local coastal communities to develop nature-based/community-based solutions for effective local warning dissemination and evacuation. The article provides excellent insights into identifying the problems coastal regions face due to climate change.
