Technical assistance for national coastal hazard management

The Coastal Hazard Wheel App provides coastal classification and adaptation information with low-moderate accuracy unless detailed classification activities have been implemented for a specific area. For local, regional and national adaptation and communication activities it is therefore recommended that the coastal classification is upgraded to higher quality to support adaptation action and coastal management.

As part of our global coastal classification programme, we offer tailored packages for these upgrades that include training and technical support for relevant local, regional and national stakeholders. These packages are offered as 'coastal classification, hazard management and standardized communication schemes'.

The specific activities depend on geographical scope, stakeholders involved, national governance systems, language requirements, specific IT-services and follow-up actions and can be designed according to national priorities. They generally involve the detailed coastal classification activities and relevant training, technical support and policy-activities.

In addition to these comprehensive technical assistance activities, we provide general support to the use of the Coastal Hazard Wheel on continuous basis.
