Risks from future sea level rise entail significant uncertainties concerning overall potential impacts, the specific threats faced by particular areas and what benefit or costs are associated with strategies for addressing such risks. The proposed risk quantification and management framework is consistent with quantitative risk analysis practices in order to enable decision making. Quantifying risk enables the examination of adaptation measures requiring basic physical inputs that can underpin for engineering viable solutions for sustaining coastal infrastructure.
