BLAST - Bringing Land and sea together

Using the 27 climate change indicators developed by the European Expert Group on ICZM, COINS helps coastal planners take account of potential future impacts of climate change in their work.


The project focused on the development of a specific technical tool - the technical charts of the sea (TCSs) - that can be used to illustrate spatial distribution of main maritime and coastal uses.
