The Partnership


Planning for the Severn Estuary

Given the low lying nature of much of the European coast, adapting to climate change and particularly sea level rise, is a major challenge for local government. In this context, the Interreg IVB IMCORE project ( is bringing together local government and academic partners from nine study sites across North West Europe to enhance local capacity for coastal climate change adaptation. As part of this project the IMCORE Severn Estuary Planning Review (2009/10) has been undertaken to inform the development of IMCORE guidelines for climate change adaptation for the Severn Estuary.
