Future Earth Coasts Partnership

Future Earth Coasts Partnership

IAN has maintained a robust relationship with Future Earths Coasts (FEC) since its inception in 2015. This group aims to support a network of coastal scientists and stakeholders who are working in the area of sustainable coastal futures. IAN has had the unique opportunity of helping the group at FEC to refine these goals and realize a vision to accomplish them. IAN team members have travelled to Bremen, Germany, Cork, Ireland, Shanghai, China, and Taipei, Taiwan to support partnership activities. Currently, IAN is contributing to an assessment of coastal sustainability case studies at locations worldwide.
