Abstract
    This paper reflects the realisation of all Integrated Master Plan to protect the Flemish coastline against erosion and flooding on a short and long term basis, looking ahead at the year 2050. Different measures and alternatives to prevent present and future flooding are being worked out on the basis of safety checks and flood risk calculations along the entire coast-The different solutions will be subjected to a social cost - benefit analysis and all environmental impact assessment. The final master plan is expected to be ready in 2010 and will detail the priorities and the needs for coastal protection investments along the coastline.
