Short description

Coastal Futures deals with questions of a sustainable and Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) at the western coast of Schleswig-Holstein. The individual subprojects are focused on the integrated analysis of the interactions between various types of coastal use as well as the interactions between human activities and the coastal ecosystem. Coastal Futures describes a joint research project supported by national and international scientific institutes, national authorities, the State Ministries of Schleswig-Holstein as well as regional and transnational institutions.

Benjamin Burkhard completed this project at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel.
