Coastal climate resilience: review of policies and regulations, Deliverable 2.2 – ECFAS Project (GA 101004211),

Velegrakis, A.F.; Hasiotis, T.; Papadatou, K.

The European Copernicus Coastal Flood Awareness System (ECFAS) project will contribute to the evolution of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service ( by demonstrating the technical and operational feasibility of a European Coastal Flood Awareness System. Specifically, ECFAS will provide a much-needed solution to bolster coastal resilience to climate risk and reduce population and infrastructure exposure by monitoring and supporting disaster preparedness, two factors that are fundamental to damage prevention and recovery if a storm hits. 

The ECFAS Proof-of-Concept development will run from January 2021-December 2022. The ECFAS project is a collaboration between Scuola Universitaria Superiore IUSS di Pavia (Italy, ECFAS Coordinator), Mercator Ocean International (France), Planetek Hellas (Greece), Collecte Localisation Satellites (France), Consorzio Futuro in Ricerca (Italy), Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), University of the Aegean (Greece), and EurOcean (Portugal), and is funded by the European Commission H2020 Framework Programme within the call LC-SPACE-18-EO-2020 - Copernicus evolution: research activities in support of the evolution of the Copernicus services.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme

The deliverables will have restricted access at least until the end of ECFAS

Description of the containing files.

Deliverable D.2.2 provides an analytical overview of the fast evolving international and European policy and legislation frameworks pertaining to the assessment and reduction of coastal flood risk in the EU. International policies and Agreements to which EU Member States adhere to, such as the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction - SFDRR 2015–2030 and the 2015 Paris Agreement, are considered together with relevant EU policies/plans for DRR, Climate Change Adaptation and ‘blue growth’  and legislation (e.g., the 2021 EU Climate Law and pertinent EU Directives), Relevant national legislation for select Member States is also reviewed. The product consists of a report.
