LIFE Coast Adapt

The negative effects of coastal erosion need to be mitigated. At the same time, we need to preserve and stimulate biodiversity. LIFE Coast Adapt tested several new, nature-based methods in the same place. A combination of ecosystem-based erosion and flood protection measures, at the same time strengthening the coastal biodiversity ecosystem. The project had an integrated, multifunctional approach through measures applied on land, in the sea and in their transition zone. 

Besides the LIFE Programme, LIFE Coast Adapt was supported by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. The project coordinating beneficiary is Region Skåne and the associate beneficiaries are Lund University, the Skåne Association of Local Authorities, the County Administrative Board of Skåne, and the municipalities of Helsingborg, Lomma and Ystad.
