Wadden Sea Ecosystem 13: Coastal Protection and Sea Level Rise

At the 8th Trilateral Governmental Wadden Sea Conference (Stade, Germany), it was decided to investigate the possible effects of enhanced sea level rise and, on the basis of such an investigation,  develop proposals for future integrated coastal defense and nature protection policies. In 1998 a trilateral expert group, the Coastal Protection and Sea Level Rise group (CPSL) was installed with this remit. The members of the group represent coastal protection and nature protection authorities in the three Wadden Sea countries. The results of the work of the CPSL, carried out in the period 1 January 1999 till 30 June 2001, are in this Report.
