Impacts of climate change on the French coastline

Today, the French coastline is increasingly threatened by climate change but also by increased pressure from human activities.

What are the risks to the coastline? How does this affect local populations? What solutions could we adapt?

France has a rich and varied coastline made up of sandy beaches, cliffs, rocky coasts, mangrove swamps, etc. With almost 20,000 km of coastline counting both metropolitan France and the French overseas departments and territories (DROMs), French territory is obviously concerned by the problems of coastal zone management

Guests: Cécile Capderrey and Gonéri Le Cozannet, Engineers and specialists in coastal risks induced by climate change.
