Learn how human and natural systems adjust to a new or changing environment. Adaptation
can be measures that moderate negative effects, cope with the consequences of change, or
those that take advantage of opportunities.
Flood adaptation categories:
Human impacts are minimized by avoiding, minimizing or regulating human use of the coastal area
Humans continue to use and occupy the coast, but adapt to reduce flood impact
Structural (hard or soft) engineering aims to protect the land from the water
