Abstract

In recent decades, the perception of coastal disasters has become a vital subject to policy and decision makers concerned with coastal risk and resilience issues. Public opinion on coastal issues was considered as a critical feature in contemporary coastal zone management field as it drives the growth of efficient and effective coastal infrastructure management and resilience strategies. The current study intended at obtaining vision into the perception of coastal disasters and risk along the Welsh coast. Specified the significance of the industrial growth, existing infrastructure expansion on the Welsh coast, the qualitative survey (n= 86) considered the both experts and non-experts opinions. Results revealed that most of the public (non-subject experts) has a sound knowledge on coastal disasters, and it's related issues but not on storm damage costs and other associated costs. Besides, major percent of people (subject experts) have an excellent knowledge on coastal disasters and vulnerability issues but not on the allocation of budget for construction of coastal defenses at national and regional and sub-regional levels. However, the majority of the people requests additional communication about the intensity of coastal disasters and risk.
