Session 11. Impacts on coastal communities

Invited Speaker:
Nesar Ahmed (Bangladesh Agricultural University, Bangladesh)

By their proximity to the ocean, coastal communities naturally rely on ecosystem services provided by marine systems. The extent of this reliance, or the type of services relied on, will vary from region to region. Climate change impacts on ecosystems will alter ecosystem services, with both negative and positive alterations. Additionally, there will be direct climate change impacts on coastal communities due to such factors as sea level rise, storm intensity or frequency, wave dynamics, and coastal erosion. This session will focus on the impacts of climate change on coastal communities due to alteration in ecosystem services or direct physical stressors, attempting to quantify the vulnerability of coastal communities to climate change. Papers that outline ecosystem and adaptive management for mitigation are encouraged.
