What is managed retreat?
True or false? Managed retreat involves making a decision to no longer follow a ‘hold the line’ strategy for managing coastlines.
If an area undergoing managed retreat is low-lying, what can be constructed inland to protect against flooding and erosion?
Identify the managed retreat impact described below: Relocating people to new homes can cause disruption and distress for those affected.
Identify the managed retreat impact described below: The short-term costs of relocation can be high.
Identify the managed retreat impact described below: Coastal bird habitats, such as bitterns, cranes, and marsh harriers, may also be affected, potentially leading to a decline in bird numbers.
Identify the managed retreat benefit described below: Coastal managed retreat can help alleviate the pressure on other areas along the coast and reduce their risk of flooding.
Identify the managed retreat benefit described below: In the long term, managed retreat may be more cost-effective than maintaining hard engineering defences.
Identify the managed retreat benefit described below: It creates new intertidal habitats that can compensate for those lost due to coastal squeeze.
Boom! Well done!
Awesome, well done! You know your hard engineering techniques.
As Thor says, not bad at all. But, let's be honest, it's not brilliant. Give the quiz another go and don't forget to read up on this area by heading over to our coasts resources using the topics link at the top of the page.
It would be best if you did some work on coastal processes. Look at our resources under Topics in the menu at the top of the page.
