The project, coordinated by the Coastal Management and Engineering Group of IHCantabria,has as main objective to identify the problems of the Mediterranean coast of Egypt, in order to propose a Coast Management Plan.

The problems of erosion, flooding, saline intrusion, both in the current situation and under different climate change scenarios have been reflected in a descriptive Atlas and a Data Catalog, which are a basic working tool for Egyptian managers.

The participation of coastal actors has been very important during the six months of the project, who have collaborated in the identification of problems and opportunities of the Egyptian coast.
