This is to announce the release of a new coastal adaptation language – the Coastal Hazard Wheel. The Coastal Hazard Wheel is available as a new UNEP publication, as scientific background papers and as a global coastal classification app. It is taken forward by an international partnership of leading knowledge institutions and all information can be found on www.coastalhazardwheel.org.
The Coastal Hazard Wheel functions as a universal coastal adaptation system to address all key coastal challenges simultaneously. It aims to boost adaptation action for the 1 billion people living in coastal areas worldwide and bridge the gap between scientists, policy-makers and the general public. It has been through a rigorous scientific review process, has been translated to all the official UN languages and can be used at local, regional and national level in both developed and developing countries.
