Common challenge

Coastal landscapes in the 2 Seas area are particularly sensitive to the water-related effects of climate change, specifically flooding, rainfall and drought. To become more resilient to climate change, a better understanding of water management solutions that can improve the ability of these landscapes, to cope with intense rainfall and rising sea levels is needed. SCAPE will address this challenge by developing and testing innovative water management solutions for coastal sites in urban, rural and fringe areas that experience flooding problems using a landscape led design (LLD) approach.
