Impacts of climate change on disadvantaged UK coastal communities

The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has published a report investigating how disadvantaged coastal communities are vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The report combines four cases studies (Great Yarmouth (Norfolk, England), Skegness (Lincolnshire, England), Llanelli (Carmarthenshire, Wales) and Benbecula (Outer Hebrides, Scotland) with a literature review and analysis of likely impacts, as well as providing recommendations for improving community resilience to climate change.
