12 The Impact of Driving Forces and Protection Policies on Future Coastal Landscapes: A Case Study of LatviaPart IV Adaptation to Changes; 13 Adaptation of Urban Regions of the Baltic Sea Coast to Climate Change: Challenges and Approaches; 14 Adaptation to Climate Change: Viniculture and Tourism at the Baltic Coast; 15 Emerging Climate Change Coastal Adaptation Strategies and Case Studies Around the World; 16 Integrating the Common Fisheries Policy and the Marine Strategy for the Baltic: Discussion of Spatial and Temporal Scales in the Management and Adaptation to Changing Climate; Index
7 Climate Change and Coastal Protection: Adaptation Strategies for the German Baltic Sea Coast8 Natural Development and Human Activities on Saaremaa Island (Estonia) in the Context of Climate Change and Integrated Coastal Zone Management; 9 Coastal Erosion Along the Portuguese Northwest Coast Due to Changing Sediment Discharges from Rivers and Climate Change; Part III Changes and Spatial Planning; 10 A Spatial Development Strategy for Climate Change The Western Pomerania Example; 11 Applying Climate Change Adaptation in Spatial Planning Processes
Summary: Climate change and ongoing transformation processes in economy and agriculture will have strong and multiple impacts in the Baltic region. In particular coastal zones face increasing hazards, e.g. due to sea level rise or changes in riverine nutrient loads and eutrophication. These changes also offer a wide range of new opportunities in the Baltic Region. Adaptation measures are needed but require a thorough and spatially differentiated understanding of underlying ecological, economic and social processes. Sixteen contributions by authors from eight countries give a comprehensive overview of t
