Com/ Damage Assessment from Storm Surge to Coastal Cities 25 lead to definitive losses of assets and our conclusion is that to take action and to raise flood defences are urgently required. In a follow-up analysis, climate change and sea level rise will be included, to investigate how these additional drivers modify the optimal defence strategy. 2 The effects of climate change on sea levels and hurricanes The 2007 Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that global mean sea levels would rise by 18 – 59 cm above 1990 levels by the 2090s.

Further studies are necessary to determine how and according to which trends people and buildings will be located in the future. Depending on urbanisation plans and land-use regulations, more buildings can translate or not into a higher exposure. As a consequence, much more Damage Assessment from Storm Surge to Coastal Cities 41 work on the vulnerability of Miami is needed and will be carried out in a follow-up study. Acknowledgements We would like to thank Auguste Boissonnade and Robert Muir-Wood from RMS and Edida Rajesh from RMSI for providing us the economic data on asset exposure, and Nicola Ranger from LSE for her advices on vulnerability curves.
