Assessing Coastal Vulnerability: Developing a Global Index for Measuring Risk
Klaus Toepfer (fr)
About 41% of the world’s population lives in the coastal zone. Nine of the world’s 10 most densely populated cities are located in coastal areas. This assessment gives an overview of current global coastal monitoring; analyzes the relationships between socioeconomic & environmental indicators in coastal zones; & reviews the relationships among human activities, environmental threats, & coastal environments in terms of population pressure, land cover, geographic exposure, the probability of natural hazards, & the coping capacities of coastal communities. The study developed a Coastal Vulnerability Index, which assigns a rough measure of each country’s relative vulnerability based on its exposure to natural hazards & its individual coping capacity.
