The PRiME-C cluster has been proposed to maximise the outputs and experiences from 9 projects to encourage efficient risk management in the context of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM).

ICZM aims for the coordinated application of the different policies affecting the coastal zone and related activities such as nature protection, aquaculture, agriculture, industry, wind energy, shipping, tourism, and adaptation to climate change. Through participation in INTERREG projects, the PRiME-C partners have gained valuable practical knowledge in a range of environmental and sustainability issues crucial for sound ICZM by working towards coastal sustainability through engaging stakeholders in risk management. This cluster will consolidate, valorise and disseminate learning from the projects to aid wider replication and identify gaps to support development of future effective policies and approaches to ICZM.

Each partner brings experience in different types of governance, environmentalrisks and stakeholder engagement across a variety of sectors.  ICZM principles suggest risk management is more efficient and effective if these differing experiences are consolidated and mainstreamed.

PRiME-C aims to use 2 Seas project results and partner knowledge to develop comprehensive ICZM practices applied to risk management. Target groups are current and future generations of people that manage, live, work and visit in coastal areas.  The partners have external links broadening PRiME-C’s scope to contribute to other thematic priorities, such as:

  • Sustainable tourism
  • Low carbon economy
  • Nature and landscape management in spatial planning

The cross-border value of PRiME-C will be results that are replicable across the 2 Seas region and will contribute to an evidence base for future European policy development.  Results can support EU Directives such as the Adaptation Strategy and the draft directive establishing a legal framework for maritime spatial planning and ICZM.”
