This publication draws upon the experience of the RESPONSE Project team, gained over many years and specifically over the lifetime of this study. In addition to the work presented in the Training Pack and the accompanying Good Practice Guide, the Project has undertaken a great deal of investigation into coastal risk management and the likely impacts of climate change on natural hazards at the coast.

The CD-Rom presents a vast resource of information and background reports produced as part of the RESPONSE Project, including documents prepared by the Study Areas. The RESPONSE project methodology was developed and tested in five regional case Study Areas and each of these areas has prepared a comprehensive report which includes the full sequence of coastal evolution and risk maps for each Study Area.
