Objective and approach

The overall objective of C5a is to enable efficient and effective adaptation to the physical, economic and social impact of fututre flooding, taking climate change into account. C5a will do so by promoting a Cloud-to-Coast (C2C), whole-of-system approach that maximises the value of investments in both physical flood protection and builds resilience in flood-prone areas.

C2C is an approach recognising that opportunities to build recilience to flooding starts from the moment the rain falls (Cloud) to flow through the rural catchment and the urban cities, before interacting with coastal storms (Coast).

C5a will build upon the outcomes of seven active Interreg NSR Projects and seven new case studies
