Since the signature of the Memorandum of Understanding between Regione LAZIO (on behalf of the MEDSANDCOAST project) and SHOM on 11th March 2016, the Coastal Mapping project is a partner of the Med-cluster FACECOAST.

The cluster FACECOAST, (”Face the challenge of climate change in the med coastal zones”) started its activities in January 2012, and currently  includes more than 80 partners (see the partnership).

It aims to gather and capitalize the contributions of the European projects which dealt with the matter of the coastal defense against natural and anthropogenic risks (erosion, flooding, salt water intrusion, subsidence, etc.) in the frame of the adaptation policy to climate change (sea level rise, strengthening of extreme phenomena, etc.) and sustainable development.
