Short summary
Climate change is leading to an increase in extreme events and enforces the development of adaptation strategies to face coastal risk. These strategies modify the inequalities barely considered during the decision-making process and question the resilience of these territories. On the French Atlantic coast, the study reveals that the managed retreat strategy seems the most sustainable over time, while the holding the coastline strategy reinforces inequalities and costs for the whole society.
