Abstract
    Within the project CLIMAR an attempt is made to develop an evaluation framework for adaptation responses toclimate change induced impacts within the North Sea environment. The identification and quantification of all thepossible secondary impacts of climate change is handled on a sectoral level. The different case-studiesinvestigated in the framework of the research are fishery, tourism, sand and gravel extraction, the port ofZeebrugge and flood risks. This document gives an overview of all the different types of land occupation andinfrastructure within the coastal zone that might be subject to flood risks as a consequence of primary climatechange impacts.
