Assessing the future impact of climate change

19% of Scotland’s 21,000 km shoreline is formed of beautiful beaches, sand dunes and salt marshes. However, considering the impact of climate change, the country’s coastal region is heavily susceptible to erosion and accretion from the build-up of sediments along the coast.

To ensure the protection of coastal communities, the Scottish Government partnered with the Scottish Natural Heritage and the University of Glasgow to undertake the first ever National Coastal Change Assessment to help authorities better assess future risks.
