Key findings include:
- Returns would highly depend on the year when a storm event would take place. If an event would happen early in the housing lifetime, positive returns would be gained from the investment.
- From a private perspective, positive returns would encourage households to invest in housing resilience.
- Storm-resilient housing would have high benefit-cost ratios.
- In order to encourage individual investment, the government should consider offering assistance to households that agree to undertake appropriate climate-resilient housing.
