The objective of Corepoint is to establish NW Europe as an internationally recognised region of excellence in coastal management.

Summary
All NW European countries share concerns about coastal problems, such as flooding resulting from coastal change. The objective of Corepoint is to establish NW Europe as an internationally recognised region of excellence in coastal management. This goal can only be achieved by co-operating on a trans-national basis to build capacity at both a European and local level to implement an integrated coastal management programme. The 4.1 M euro project also seeks to influence national spatial policy in line with the EU’s recommendations on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), develop an integrated coastal information management system for NW Europe and promote shared social and political responsibility for the coastal environment. The lead partner is the Coastal and Marine Resources Centre of University College Cork. Together with 11other bodies from across NW Europe it will establish a virtual Coastal Resource Centre for North West Europe housing a Geographic Information coastal atlas for the region, a media information resources centre and coastal zone youth club. The project also seeks to engage European decision makers and citizens in ICZM, by for example setting up expert surgeries in coastal management issues.

Objectives

  • Build European and local capacity to implement integrated coastal management programmes.


  • Provide concrete solutions for current problems in the Northwest region using current best practice approaches and identify models for sustaining ICZM initiatives.


  • Promote social and political responsibility for the coastal environment.


  • Influence national spatial policy development in response to the EU Recommendation on ICZM.


  • Develop an integrated coastal information management system for Northwest Europe
