8 pagesDate: April 14, 2024


Coastal regions face escalating flood hazards exacerbated by climate change, necessitating effective adaptation measures. However, the adoption of flood hazard adjustment strategies varies across communities and is influenced by socioeconomic factors. This study assesses the influence of socioeconomic factors on flood hazard adjustment adoption in coastal areas. Through quantitative analysis and case studies, the research examines how variables such as income, education, housing tenure, and social capital shape community responses to flood risks. Key findings reveal disparities in adaptation adoption rates among different socioeconomic groups, highlighting the need for targeted interventions to address vulnerabilities. Moreover, the study identifies barriers and facilitators to adaptation adoption, offering insights for policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders to design inclusive and equitable resilience-building strategies. By enhancing our understanding of the socioeconomic dimensions of flood hazard adjustment, this research contributes to more effective and socially just adaptation efforts in coastal regions
