Coastal Communities 2150

Coastal Communities 2150 (CC2150) is a communications project to engage vulnerable communities who are at risk from coastal change.

CC2150 logoWe want these communities to understand the long-term risks from a changing climate and shoreline.

Coastal communities across Europe face the prospect of rising sea levels, higher storm surges and increased erosion, flooding and salinisation. Coastal changes will impact all areas of life and construction of ever-greater levels of traditional flood defences are not always a realistic option, either socially or environmentally.

By looking at changes over a long-term timeframe, communities will be able to see a broad view of  coastal changes, both positive and negative. This project will encourage local decision-making and allow communities to be open to developing their own responses.

For more information about the project, please read our introductory leaflet and Mid-Term Review:


From 1 April 2014, the CC2150 pages of will be archived with no further information being added.

Instead, Coastal Communities 2150 will have a page on

The URL will be updated to redirect to the new content once the CC2150 page has been created.

Project reports and templates for communities

The CC2150 website will become a resource for organisations and communities preparing to adapt to long-term coastal change. We recommend that you start by reading the 'Practical guide' and the additional case studies.

Example vision and adaptation plans will be available in the next few months.
