Safecoast : Sharing knowledge on climate change & coastal flood and erosion management


The Safecoast project is about gaining and sharing knowledge and information on coastal flood and erosion risk management between coastal management authorities in five North Sea countries: Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and United Kingdom. The Safecoast project was divided into work packages called ‘Actions’. Depending on their goals these actions could either compare between countries (cohesion actions), translating knowledge into pilot site risk assessments or plans (focused actions) and finally converging the knowledge and lessons learnt into a synthesis (synthesis action). Results have been discussed in 5 seperate workshops, that have contributed to a better and common understanding of our methods, our ways of thinking and our cultures.
