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

  • The IMCORE approach is only one of many methodologies available for practitioners to use.
  • The steps of the IMCORE guidance can be used to the convenience and circunstances of each user, we are aware that one size does not fit all.
  • There are a number of guidelines that our partners recommend (thumb icon): in UK, article x, the guidelines (CRC) (Australian guidelines too)
  • The added value of is that the methodology has been tested in 9 areas and lessons learned and tools have been reviewed.
  • It should also be noted that we have only covered the planning phase of the adaptation cycle. Implementation and evaluation are essential to make this effort worthwhile. This is why we have focused on building capacity for practitioners, scientists and stakeholders to work collaboratively in a long standing relationship that should see them through the entire adaptation cycle.

The Severn Estuary lies on the west coast of the British Isles and separates South West England from South Wales. It is Britain's second largest estuary (557 km2) with an extensive catchment, extending into the English Midlands and into Mid-Wales. It boasts the highest tidal range in Europe with a tidal regime which causes strong tidal streams, mobile sediments and the famous Severn Bore. For more information click here.
