International projects


One of the core tasks of the Danish Coastal Authority is to provide guidance to citizens, authorities and politicians regarding, amongst other topics, coastal dynamic, coastal protection methods and climate adaptation. To provide the best possible guidance the Coastal Authority continuously develops our professional knowledge within these topics. This often occurs in close collaboration with other expert within the fields both national and international.
