Abstract
Global climate change characterized by temperature rising has become an indisputable fact, which has become a common problem and a major challenge of the whole world today. Coastal areas are the most significant, most responsive, and most uncertain and diverse regions affected by global climate change. According to the climate change impact and disaster risk faced by China's coastal economic development, the impact mechanism of climate change on coastal economic development is analyzed. The disaster chain method is used to deduct the structure of the disaster chain system that may be faced in coastal areas, and the conceptual model of climate change risk is constructed. A risk assessment indicator system based on typical disasters in coastal areas such as tropical cyclones, sea level rise and storm surges was established. The application demonstration of tropical cyclone risk assessment for climate change scenarios and experimental zoning was carried out, In order to provide reference and reference for China's coastal economic development to cope with climate change and prevent climate risks.
