A team of coastal managers from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Denmark and the UK are continuing their co-operation in project SafeCoast which aims to build on each other’s experience and understanding of coastal risk management. The project partners are linked together in the North Sea Coastal Managers Group (NSCMG) and have also worked together in the Interreg IIIb project Comrisk.

SafeCoast considers the question: ‘How to manage our North Sea coasts in 2050?’ and focuses on the consequences of climate change and spatial developments with respect to safety from tidal flooding. And enables coastal managers to share their knowledge and experience to broadening their scope on flood risk management in order to find new ways to keep our feet dry in the future.
