About this book

This book focuses on the interchange between a selected multidisciplinary team on future coastal management in Europe. It serves as a background for the successful implementation of EC directives relevant to the coast. The study summarizes methodologies and analyses for supporting implementation of these directives and evaluates institutional and capacity requirements. It addresses issues of globalization including climate change and economic development. Integrated assessment is used and future scenarios for the coast are developed.
