The objective of this report is to frame an analytical approach for coastal areas in Europe, and to place this in the context of the new socio-economic drivers of sustainable growth, and the formation of a new integrated policy framework. This framework builds on an ecosystem-based management approach and integrated spatial planning and management. The report presents some key sustainability challenges for European coastal areas and waters, and highlights the need for a consolidated knowledge base and widespread information-sharing to support informed policy development and management actions.
