Zoom and Pan
The maps cover the entire Israeli Mediterranean coastline - Use your mouse to zoom and pan to the area of your choice

Population at Risk

Social and economic data were collected at different aggregate levels and re- distributed spatially in order to generate estimates of the costs of SLR in social and economic terms, at a level of spatial disaggregation not generally available. To facilitate this we make use of a GIS buildings layer that identifies each structure and its use. the use of GIS allows for the disaggregation of spatial units (for example total inhabitants per statistical area) into micro units (inhabitants per building) and their re-aggregation into discrete units such as municipalities.
