Assets at Risk
Significant economic assets are at risk in the coming
decades because of coastal change, including:
• >£150 billion from coastal flooding around the UK4,
for example a 0.4m sea level rise would increase the
number of properties at risk in eastern England from
270,000 to 404,000;
• £75 billion from flooding in London4
• £10 billion from coastal erosion across the UK6
• a range of goods and services provided by vulnerable
coastal areas in England, including numerous natural
habitats, cultural heritage sites, agricultural land and
recreational opportunities.
It is predicted that future climate change could lead to
even more significant losses to economic, social and
environmental assets by the end of this century6.
