By 2025, nearly 6 billion people will live within 200 km of a coastline – close to double the number in 2003. Population growth – along with climate change induced sea level rise, storm surges and heavy rainfall intensity are spurring the noticeable increase in coastal flooding and degradation of ecosystems and coastal regions.
According to The Global Risks Report 2019, published by the World Economic Forum, the most frequently cited risk interconnection was the pairing of ‘failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation’ and ‘extreme weather events.’ It’s time to take action and implement real measures to protect our coastal communities.
MIKE Powered by DHI’s suite of coastal resilience tools and technology enable you to not only understand vulnerabilities but develop real solutions to protect against flood danger. You’ll gain powerful insight on how to best address key concerns such as storm surge risk and the capacity of your storm water infrastructure.
As sea levels rise and urban vulnerabilities increase, mainstream investment in adaptation and resilience will follow. The amount of actionable information gained from layering complementary tools and modelling software can enable true adaptation to be achieved.
Are you interested in implementing MIKE technology in your community but don’t have the in-house resources to learn and use the applications? No worries. What’s unique about DHI is that we don’t just develop the tools, we use them ourselves as a super user across all domains. We have a large team of in-house consultants that can help communities such as yours develop coastal resilience solutions.

Advanced forecast of extreme weather events has provided support to many marine and coastal activities from coastal flooding to planning. However, understanding flood risk in itself is just the beginning. The best coastal flooding tools not only provide flood risk evaluation, but also help us develop real and economic solutions using our latest knowledge.
Join this free 30-minute webinar to learn how data analysis and visualisation techniques can reveal risks and vulnerabilities, inform engineered and nature-based design solutions and support real-time flood protection strategies.
