This important book offers practical and evidence-driven design solutions for coastal communities threatened by sea level rise. Through illustrative case studies from around the world the authors offer a range of innovative structural and nature-based solutions that are critical to building community resilience. A must read for anyone interested in how resilience can be advanced through landscape architecture, urban design, and land use planning.

It is rare in the field of flood risk reduction to find international comparisons. Design for Sea Level Rise provides that and more. This book includes integrated analyses of eighteen flood cases from around the world. Impressively illustrated and presented, this piece of work will surely become the benchmark for landscape architects interested in addressing the increasing threat of flooding from sea level rise.

Sea level rise is much perceived as a worldwide problem not related to people's lives. In this insightful book, Newman and Qiao present a collection of global case studies to combat sea level rise. The design-based typologies and illustrated mechanisms provide valuable knowledge and resources for mitigating rising seas.
