Coastal management and maritime issues

Coast 4 us logo

Coast4us project resulted in 8 sustainable development plans for pilot regions around the Baltic coast

The aim of the project Coast4us was to develop a holistic and inclusive approach to the spatial and community development planning process by involving stakeholders of different interests to create sustainable marine and coastal development plans at different levels, including at community grassroots level.

During this project, partners worked in three main, interlinked areas:

Marine/coastal area with improved management

Four new plans "where the land meets the sea" and a guide for Integrated Coastal Zone Management provided by SustainBaltic

The aim of the SustainBaltic project was to ensure that sea-land interfaces would be preserved and further developed.

FamilyPorts provide enjoyable stay for the entire family

Four small ports (two in south-west of Finland and two on Gotland island in Sweden made investments into service buildings and green technology. The new/improved service buildings also provide the companies running the ports an opportunity to boost the marketing of the ports. The joint marketing is visible in the website FamilyPorts

30MILES developed services for lively water tourism in the Eastern Gulf of Finland

The main result of the 30MILES project was the increasement of the service level at the ports in the Eastern Gulf of Finland (Eastern GoF). The result was achieved with several infrastructure investments in the ports, by creating a network for the small ports and a route risk analysis related to boating in GoF. All in all, 12 different ports and 12 project partners from Finland and Estonia were involved in the project. The project increased the safety and accessability of the ports in collaboration with relevant sailing and port safety officials.

PortMate - improved safety and resource efficient services in small ports

Project partnership worked during end 2016-end 2019 to improve services in 19 small ports in Finland, Sweden, and Åland (Rauma, Gävle, Söderhamn, Kökar, Sottunga and other small ports nearby). A considerable part of the project budget and resources was devoted to the upgrade of investments – service houses, waste management solutions, drinking water, lighting, renewable energy by solar panels, etc, which is a valuable achievement that is used by boaters and other small port users today and during coming years.
