MESSINA COASTAL TOOLKIT

 

Regarding the Objectives of the project, four Practical Guides have been compiled which provide,
for each thematic:

- a state-of-the-art study,
- a case-study analysis,
- best practices compilation ,
- operational recommendations.

Results have been discussed and validated during specific workshops.

Online illustrated database on Innovative Engineering structures against
coastal erosion has been created, available at

GIS prototypes addressing coastal spatial planning concerns have been designed on three pilot sites

The Alabaster Coast (High-Normandy, France),
Risks associated to high cliff retreat and French Coastal Act application,
The City of Rewal (Poland)
For mitigating urban sprawl due to seasonal tourist attraction,
The Lido of Sète-Marseillan (France)
Coastal spatial planning including road realignment and dune system restoration.
