Impacts of man-Induced Changes in Land use and Climate Change on Living in Coastal and Deltaic Areas
by Bart Schultz

Sea level rise due to climate change is presented as one of our biggest problems. The reality is quite different and generally insufficiently taken into account in decision-making. 80–90% of the population growth takes place in urban areas that are located in coastal and deltaic regions. In the majority of these areas there is land subsidence with a much larger impact than sea level rise. Commonly, inadequate measures are taken to reduce the risk of flooding. Based on newly available data, trends and forecasts, the relevant aspects and their impacts are presented in this paper, together with a future outlook.
