This publication does not only satisfy the core objectives of the Working Group 8.4, but also provides solutions to some of the key issues that were raised in the Costa Rica Declaration and the outcome of the roundtable discussion with Working Group 4.3. Through the Costa Rica Declaration, FIG acknowledged the pressure being placed upon Coastal Zones and the urgent need for adaptation and the support of best practice and programmes. This report compiles 15 sets of concise technical and analytical case studies worldwide, on a range of topics that centre on coastal adaptation planning, climate change and associated sea level rise. It also touches on methodology on valuing un-price and heritage resources in the coastal zone. The case studies are highly focused on problems, methodologies, change processes, results and the lessons learned.
