Submission to Call for Evidence on Flooding and Coastal Erosion by Defra
In July 2019 the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched a call for evidence
to seek guidance on policy direction to prepare the UK for flooding and coastal erosion. This paper summarises the submission to this inquiry by Swenja Surminski, Viktor Roezer, Sara Mehryar
and Rebecca Byrnes on behalf of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the
Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the ESRC Centre for Climate
Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP).
