Guidelines for Environmental Impacts Studies focused on coastal protection works and plans
This Component aims to establish specific technical guidelines for Public Administrations responsible for coastal defence/management planning, in order to be as a support in mandatory procedures such as Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEA) focused on coastal protection works and plans.
Component 5 consists of 2 Phases:
- Phase A : will study framework, existing experience and weaknesses on environmental impact studies for coastal works/plans in EU evolution
- Phase B : will design specific guidelines for environmental impacts studies
Phase A develops two actions:A1. Analyses of existing experiences / case study on this issue;
A2. Interviews through specific questionnaire to EU Public Administrations (PAs) in charge with coastal protection/management in order to scout the practical problems and the needs that PAs usually face drawing environmental impact studies.
Phase B develops three actions:
B1. In-depth examination of environmental specificities of protected coastal areas for the choice of environmental components with particular reference to the ones listed in the international legislation;
B2. Design of specific guidelines on environmental impacts studies for EU PAs which plan coastal works, with a special focus on sensitive and/or protected coastal areas;
B3. Sharing the guidelines with National Authorities (ENV Ministries) of involved MS.
