Abstract

Disasters in coastal cities have shown an ever-increasing frequency of occurrence. Population growth and  urbanisation have increased the vulnerability of properties and societies in coastal flood-prone areas. Analysis of  human exposure and vulnerability is one of the main strategies used to determine the necessary measures of flood risk reduction in coastal cities. This study applied multi-criteria evaluation techniques to determine areas vulnerable to floods.
