Abstract

From examples key principles are deduced which may prejudice the existence of future habitats : accelerated future sediment demand due to relative sea level rise (RSLR) may not be met by supply and, if short- to medium-term hold-the-line policies predominate, long-term strategies for managed realignment and habitat enhancement may prove impossible goals. Instead of integrated coastal organization, managers may need to consider coastal breakdown, segmentation and habitat reduction as the basis of 21st century coastal evolution and planning
