Coastal areas are highly vulnerable to the climate change, especially to sea level rise & its related extreme events. Extensive research has been carried out in the past two decades on impacts of climate change with major focus is on the coastal zone. Several international approaches have been developed to assess the vulnerability of coastal zone due to climate change and sea level rise. In spite of India having a very long coastal line, very limited studies have been carried out to assess the vulnerability of its coastal zone.
