Three new research reports have been added to CoastAdapt this month, looking at various aspects of coastal adaptation and how CoastAdapt addresses these: an analysis of CoastAdapt case studies, a study of the intersection of C-CADS and pathways approaches to adaptation planning, and a look at transport infrastructure in the coastal zone.

A draft paper has been prepared on CoastAdapt, and this has been submitted to the journal Climatic Change for review.
