"Training Pack": Coastal evolution and risk mapping

The Training Pack demonstrates how to produce maps that show the future pattern of coastal evolution and risks across a region (or sediment cell), which take account of the impacts of climate change. These maps can provide an understanding of the pattern and scale of coastal change and assist in targeting resources effectively. The Training Pack also contains evidence on the importance of taking cost-effective action now to prevent worsening impacts in a changing climate.
