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

We held a workshop to identify issues and raise awareness but had not clearly defined our objectives. We learnt that it is important to be very clear on what you are doing, why you are doing it, what you hope to achieve and adapt the action to local conditions if required.


Issues and objectives workshop in Sefton
What we did

We held a workshop with key partners and elected members to scope out some of the key issues that we needed to consider in relation to coastal change. This included a significant amount of awareness raising.

Why we did it

This was part of the approach set out within the IMCORE proposal.

What we achieved Raised awareness.
Problems we had At the start of the project there was confusion in our minds as to the purpose of this workshop. In hindsight for us the primary purpose of this workshop was about awareness raising.
What we learned

It is important not to just follow the process but to be clear on why you are doing a particular action and what you hope to achieve and if necessary adjust the action to fit to your local conditions.


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.
