SARCC will mainstream nature-based solutions (NBS) into coastal management and policy making, whether that is as stand alone projects or NBS-hybrids, where they are integrated into existing grey infrastructure and flood defences. The project builds the capacity of urban leaders, decision-makers and officers involved in coastal flood defences to deploy NBS and understand the additional benefits that they offer in comparison to traditional grey infrastructure.
The project is a part of the Interreg 2 Seas programme and has financial support from the European Union / European Regional Development Fund. Exo Environmental are leading on communications whilst also working on Work Package 1: Implementation Framework and Monitoring.

As one of the knowledge partners we are working on nature based solutions, drawing on our expertise in habitat restoration as well as on hybrid solutions.
