The research project aims to :

  • Update

Coastal systems in the Anthropocene are facing complex and compounding challenges associated with the interaction between climate change impacts and human intervention. In West Africa, large sedimentary systems are susceptible to change in sediment sources and supply, and changes in climate forcing have influenced the development of these coastal frameworks over centuries and millennia. But over more recent decades and centuries, the role of climate variability is compounded with the decisions and interventions of humans, through artificial modification of coastal systems, regulation and control of watersheds, and construction of settlements and structures that interfere with coastal processes.

The research project investigates :

  • Impacts of climate and ocean changes

  • Sensitivity to coastal hazards (erosion, floods, storms)

  • Coastal management in Senegal and West Africa

The project is still ongoing.
