Abstract

This paper describes coastal resilience as a measure of the extent to which a coast is able to respond to external pressures without losing actual or potential functions. Coastal resilience has morphological, ecological and socio-economic components, each of which represents another aspect of the coastal system's adaptive capacity to pertubations. A recent study explores possibilities of enhancing coastal resilience in the Netherlands by allowing managed retreat in areas where it is environmentally acceptable and reclaiming land in other areas
