This report provides an overview of the general institutional framework and climate change policy of Belgium and the coastal zone and assesses which institution is the most appropriate and competent to develop an integrated coastal adaptation plan. Furthermore the report assesses the existing climate change plans and the integration of adaptation concerns in these plans as well as the integration of adaptation into existing legislation is investigated. In addition the various coastal sectors are listed as well as the responsible authority to tackle the impacts of climate change. The report examines how planning bodies within these sectors are embedding climate change adaptation considerations into their policies.
