Table of Contents
    This meeting will focus on the support provided by the EU to the production and accessibility of environmental data of use for the anticipation and monitoring of coastal risks such as erosion, floods or storms. Anticipating and monitoring these risks is necessary to protect both the population and economic activities in coastal areas.

    This can be related to the following issues:

    • Which kind of data are needed and how can these data be made available to public authorities and private stakeholders?
    • Which financial support can the EU provide to the production and accessibility of relevant data?

    The perspective of national authority and of the regions will be included in the discussions, notably on the basis of the outcomes of the Coastal Mapping project. This project was financed by the EMFF led by the SHOM. It involved other national bodies in charge of coastal data from several countries and the CPMR. This project resulted in suggestions for a European strategy for coastal data, based on 3 axis, which are 1- Set up coordinated  programmes for data acquisition 2 - Seize opportunities for the acquisition of bathymetric in EU programmes 3- Ensure that those data are standardised and capitalised
