van den Bergh, J., Nijkamp, P.: Economic aspects of global change impacts and response strategies in the coastal zone of The Netherlands. Journal of Coastal Conservation, 4: 161-168, 1998.


Abstract. Economic aspects of possible land use strategies and protection measures in coastal zones as a response to global environmental change are examined. First, some key elements are mentioned that are of critical importance for water and land management in coastal zones. Next, various socio-economic repercussions are discussed. In this context, research needs will be addressed. Subsequently, these issues are considered for the case of The Netherlands. It is concluded that integrated modelling and analysis is just starting and needs to receive more attention in order to study long run economic costs, benefits and changes in coastal zones.
