Owners of beach establishments do [know they are exposed to sea flooding or coastal erosion]. They build this winter embankment by beach scraping. We should give them guidelines on how to do this; otherwise they may worsen the impacts. But on the long-term political decisions must be taken for land planning. You can no longer build at the seafront. You must plan coastal “regeneration”, giving an ecological compensation to those urbanized areas, moving inland and retreat from the coastline - with the vision of maintaining urbanization but improving it.
