Environmental Management and Planning

The development of comprehensive plans and programs for managing watersheds and coastal areas is the best example of the multidisciplinary capabilities of IHCantabria. Management plans for river and coastal systems are devised in IHCantabria using a systemic approach to the natural environment and to the concepts of integrated management of the different economic and administrative sectors.

IHCantabria has extensive experience and an in-depth knowledge of the physical and ecological processes of continental, estuarine and coastal water systems. Both aspects arise from a history of working in an eminently multidisciplinary environment that helps turn the necessary interaction between engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists, geographers, graduates in marine and environmental sciences into a functional reality rather than a congregation of groups.
