The aim of the FR@ME project was to reduce flood risk in North Sea Estuaries by advancing and promoting innovative solutions involving sustainable new land uses whilst safeguarding the Natura 2000 series and to provide new opportunities for social, economic and environmental benefits. FR@ME assisted in the practical development of sustainable flood risk management strategies in the North Sea estuaries, enabling the most beneficial strategic options and techniques to be adopted. The FR@ME project identified three main study themes: Flood Control Areas, Sustainable New Land Uses and Communications. A number of thematic studies, and the experiences gained through the preparation and realisation of the demonstration sites were shared with extensive groups of stakeholders. This output collected and maintained as on-line best practice manual and the material investments in the field, provide tangible project results for the coming years. The collected knowledge on the main themes of the project will ensure that future estuary projects can use the revised and updated information on communication strategies, flood control areas, alternative land use strategies in estuaries, social-economic costs/benefits, developments in Bird-/Habitat Directive (Natura2000) areas and decision making methodology.
