Balancing the future of Europe's coasts - knowledge base for integrated management (2013)

Description

The objective of this report is to frame an analytical approach for coastal areas in Europe, and to place this in the context of the new socio‑economic drivers of sustainable growth, and the formation of a new integrated policy framework.This framework builds on an ecosystem‑based management approach and integrated spatial planning and management.

 

The report presents some key sustainability challenges for European coastal areas and waters, and highlights the need for a consolidated knowledge base and widespread information‑sharing to support informed policy development and management actions.

 

In particuar. there are chapters on marine and maritime sustainable growth, ecosystem-based management and adaptation priorities for coasts, the formation of a new integrated policy framwork and the knowledge base for integrated management.
