Practical tips for following the IMCORE approach to planning to adapt to coastal climate change 



In the North East of England there is a high level of awareness of the need to adapt to climate change. IMCORE (through the regional group ForeSea) brought a coastal  element to this process. Developing adaptation strategies created divergence at the initial issues workshop but some important topics were raised and used as a prompt for developing adaptation strategies with the ForeSea steering group.

Climate North East, along with others, has developed strategies to work with and adapt to the impacts of climate change. Having a member of the partnership of Climate NE on the steering group opened up the capacity to feed in to their adaptation strategy. This will be done through developing the North East Coastal Network. The strategies of Climate NE and those developed from the   adaptation workshops will be used as guidelines for creating the background for the network.

The current status of the North East economically will be a key selling point to sign members up for the network as it represents  “togetherness” in a region that is being restructured and broken down due to funding reductions associated with government cut backs.

This learning portal brings together the results and lessons learned from the IMCORE project. This project was funded under the Interreg IVB programme from 2008 to 2011.
