The Film on DVD


The RESPONSE DVD is a fifteen minute film exploring the issues facing Europe's coastal communities and introducing the aims and results of the European RESPONSE Project including the innovative methodology that may be used to map coastal evolution and risk.

It provides an introduction to the likely impacts of climate change at the coast, and explains the potential for coastal hazards such as erosion, flooding and landsliding to increase. As such hazard events become more frequent and severe; responsible authorities must find a way to manage the increasing levels of risk being faced by coastal communities and the associated economic and social costs.

The DVD is tri-lingual, with commentary provided in English, Italian and French. It was filmed at locations in the UK, Italy and France.
