Abstract
    This is the third section report written by Flanders Hydraulics Research in the framework of the BELSPO project CLIMAR. The report is part of work package 3 of the case-study coastal flooding, in which alternative adaptation measures to the increasing risks of coastal flooding as a consequence of climate change are identified. The research is based on international literature and on the outcomes of an interactive workshop with stakeholders from different coastal sectors, organized in the scope of work package 3 of CLIMAR. First, an overview is given of all the feasible structural and non-structural adaptation measures which where found in literature or proposed during the workshop. Second, this variety of solutions is projected onto the Belgian coastline. A more detailed evaluation of the proposed scenario’s will be carried out in the next work package of the project.
