  • Many coastal decision makers are actively assessing options to manage coastal flood risk that incorporates rising sea levels. These adaptation options are broadly grouped into three categories protect, accommodate or retreat and each option has its costs and benefits. The mix of options chosen largely depends on the attitudes and perspectives of the community at risk without their support, decisions within a democratic political system are unlikely to be successful.
