Abstract: 

Emerging evidence shows that the proximity to nature, including coastal environments, provides many benefits to human health and mental well-being. However, the environmental, social, and emotional impacts of climate change such as sea-level rise and increased flooding pose significant risks for coastal communities and may offset the benefits of living close to the coast. Many countries and regions of the world, including the United Kingdom in general, and Wales in particular, have a history of severe coastal flooding. This dissertation examined whether an individual's level of concern about flood risk impacted their health and mental well-being. Particular focus was given to the relationships between flood-risk concerns and awareness, human demographics, health, mental well-being, material deprivation, social-community cohesion, and coastal proximity.
