Greater concentrations of greenhouse gases could bring about an increase in the pace of sea level rise and typhoon intensity in the future. The number of hours that buildings and infrastructure will be affected by high wind speeds is likely to increase in the future, and this could create a number of problems for coastal infrastructure and housing. The effect that sea level rise will have on the construction of breakwaters is also investigated, showing how this will cause an increase in the required materials (and thus the cost) to build and maintain these and other types of sea defenses. Although higher typhoon wind speeds could also increase the size of waves reaching the coastline, the mild slope bathymetries in the south of the country are likely to limit this effect. In areas such as Phan Thiet, the shallow nearshore bathymetry breaks the waves long before they reach the coastline, effectively shielding it from the worst types of waves. However, an increase in sea levels will allow bigger waves to reach the coastline, and require heavier armor to be used in revetments and breakwaters.
