Coastal Development

Coastal development is a broad category which includes an array of human activities including beachfront construction of homes, hotels, restaurants, and roads, often for tourism. Also included are things like beach renourishment, seawall construction, and nearshore dredging and oil platform construction. As coasts become more developed, the vulnerability component of the equation increases as there is more value at risk to the hazard.
