The project is the result of the merging of two different streams of activity on the problem of protecting coastal areas: on the one hand, work relating to the protection of specific areas (often stimulated by catastrophic events), and on the other, initiatives aimed at developing general (at least at a national level) standards for assessing the state of the coast, its evolution and the causes of these changes.
The original proposal for creating guidelines for the protection of coastal areas was carried out by the Italian organization, DTSN (National Department for National Technical Services), which later became known as APAT (National Agency for Environment and Technical Services),and some preliminary work was carried out.
The present project was designed by CINFAI in the context of an integrated view of land-sea interaction.
