European challenges to coastal management from storm surges: Problem-structuring framework and actors implicated in responses
Boyes, Suzanne; Elliott, Michael
Isabelle La Jeunesse
A number of studies have investigated the impacts of storm surges at the local or regional scale, with a recent study by Vousdoukas et al. giving projections for Europe for 2010-2040 and 2070-2100. This chapter shows that the North and Baltic Sea coastlines show the largest increase in storm surges, where in contrast the southern European Mediterranean coastal areas can expect minimal changes. In order to understand how hazards such as storm surges can be most effectively addressed using governance and other management approaches, it looks at the legislative responses (as measures to control the situation) used in Europe along with the actors or stakeholders who implement these. In order to analyse and address the complexity of the marine environment, scientists and policy makers have used problem-structuring frameworks to assess the causes, consequences, and responses to change in a holistic way.
