A team of coastal managers from the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Denmark and the UK have started to co-operate in a joint project Safecoast that aims to learn from each other about coastal risk management. 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 flooding.
