Diagnostic indicators of territorial change
Indicator-oriented approaches embrace several aspects of coastal erosion vulnerability assessments. Nonetheless, coastal erosion is mostly increasing because of both the lack of univocal and resolutive practices on coastal management and increasing human pressure on coastal systems. This article proposes the implementation of an Index of Social and Morphological Vulnerability (ISMV) to show how the cost of services and morphological trends can affect the distribution of benefits, produce coastal narrowing, and consequently the resilience potential of coasts. This innovative indicator framework was carried out for the Mediterranean area of San Vincenzo in Italy. The analysis highlights that administrative actions can be crucial to support or to impoverish the resilience potential. Areas of relative regeneration capacity were distinguished as high (4.11), moderate (0.37), and low (0.33). They could be enhanced just by planning resolutive beach management at a local scale. In this context, ...
