Co-creating evidence-based business roadmaps and policy solutions for enhancing coastal-rural collaboration and synergies

COASTAL Collaborative Land-Sea Integration Platform

Dear reader,

The time has come for us, the COASTAL team, to say goodbye. The project ended with a successful Final Event in Ostend, Belgium, where experts, practitioners, and policymakers came together to discuss the advantages of coastal-rural cooperation and get a glimpse of our work in the project. We are now ready to conclude COASTAL and take with us all the valuable lessons we've learned in over 4 years of enthusiastic and innovative work.

But before we do that, we wanted to share the knowledge and results we've gained and provide you with all the key practices and road maps for land-sea synergies – all of which you can find in our Knowledge Exchange Platform! A new platform made for you, where you will find a rich repository of COASTAL results, as well as a forum for exchanging knowledge and ideas with other stakeholders on how to help make the coastal-rural collaboration a reality in your own areas.

We invite you to explore the platform and join our mission!
