COASTATLANTIC: Integrated Coastal Zone Management: towards an Atlantic Vision

Type of Entry: Project
Website: www.coastatlantic.org
Duration: 01/08/2003 - 01/08/2006

The objective of the COASTATLANTIC project is to stimulate the healthy and sustainable development of coastal areas from an environmental, social, and economic point of view, through the encouragement of integrated spatial planning and implementation of its management.

The partners involved in this INTERREG III B Program are co-operating since 2003 with the final goal of making recommendations for producing a common vision of the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) for the Atlantic Area. A lack of such a vision for the Atlantic Coast has been identified compared to other areas (North Sea, Baltic, Mediterranean) where a homogeneous approach already exists.
