Sustainable Resilient Coasts

COAST is a collaboration project between partners from Iceland, Finland, Ireland and Northern Ireland focusing on the future challenges and development of coastal areas.

The objectives of COAST is to develop a Sustainable Resilient Coasts Toolbox for local authorities, focusing on SMART Blue Growth, which is based on principles of Sustainability, Mitigation, Planning, Adaptation, Resilience and Transition. The Toolbox will include practical guidance to support local authorities in the protection, promotion and development of the unique natural and cultural heritage of the coastal zone within and beyond the NPA.
