This publication brings together the knowledge gained by the cluster partners and builds on learning from their INTERREG projects. It promotes cross border best practice techniques, methods and tools for designing and implementing coastal risk management programmes and for actively involving stakeholders in these processes. Inside are examples such as multi-dimension frameworks for identifying risk, strategies for community-led planning and systems for using historic data and local people to monitor change. There is a wealth of resources and evidence from INTERREG projects and clusters available to coastal managers in the 2 Seas area. These resources are part of the legacy of the INTERREG IVA 2 Seas Programme and will help launch risk management initiatives in the future.
