Coastal Hazard Wheel

Developer or Source: Coastal Hazard Wheel platform, Deltares, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

The Coastal Hazard Wheel is a universal coastal adaptation system to address all coastal challenges simultaneously. It can be used as a complete coastal language and aims to boost adaptation action and bridge the gap between scientists, policy-makers and the general public. It is based on a new coastal classification system and functions as a key for classifying a particular coastal location, determining its hazard profile, identifying relevant management options and communicating coastal information. The Coastal Hazard Wheel App currently provides global coastal classification and adaptation information with low-moderate accuracy and will be continuously improved as various adaptation projects are implemented.
