Coastal and estuarine zones are particularly sensitive to pressure from climate drivers, population and increasing exploitation of resources. Our challenge is to deeply understand the dynamics of and interactions between natural and anthropogenic processes, and to aspire to a sustainable coastal and estuarine management.
Water resources are not endless, but must nevertheless support huge and ever increasing social and economic needs. Structured water resources management is therefore of major importance to ensure them to sustainably comply with these needs.
