dc.description.abstract Despite the uncertainties that exist within climate change projection models, the only way to reduce our vulnerability to future changes in sea level is to implement adaptation strategies. The primary goal should not be to determine a worst-case scenario, but instead to identify the most vulnerable areas first, and to gradually introduce phased adaptation strategies into relatively lower risk areas. The present study looks at how we assess the potential impacts of sea level rise and how we can make use of these assessments in planning and design practice. As a case study for impact and vulnerability assessments, the flood risk areas on the coast of Prince Edward Island are mapped and a method for conducting a vulnerability assessment for individual properties is proposed. Finally, design strategies that were generated through the assessment process are presented as examples of no-regrets adaptation strategies. en
