"The objective of CoCoNet is to establish a network to promote Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) in the INTERREG III area. This project aims to develop a network of community stakeholders with an interest in sustainable management of their local coastal resources. Stakeholders will include national and regional authorities, local community interest groups (fishermen, tourist operators, aquaculturists, conservationists, property developers, shipping operators, teachers, etc.).

As countries bordering the Southern Irish Sea, Ireland and Wales both share common experiences encountered in the challenge to decouple economic growth in the coastal environment with potentially harmful impacts. The successful participation of community stakeholders is fundamental to CoCoNet’s mode of operation. CoCoNet aims to promote best practice and sustainability and develop a platform for dialogue and relationship building."
