The coasts of the Northern Periphery and Arctic Territory are at the front-line of sustainability challenges. Climate change calls for competence and capability from the people living and working in the coastal areas. This report provides a grass-roots approach to capacity building in coastal communities.
The Sustainable Resilient Coasts (COAST) project takes a grass-root approach to introduce several examples of how to respond to climate change locally. The keywords of the activities could be summarized as cooperation, participation, and shared understanding. The main aim is to showcase the potential that local communities possess for sharing capacity building and action, and re-building new capacity collectively. Each case can be tailored to another region facing similar challenges.
