LNEC is a partner of the Project LIFE-GARACHICO - Adaptation to coastal flooding due to climate change in urban areas of Macaronesia

This project consists on the creation and implementation of a flexible strategy in order to reduce the risk of flooding, based on the involvement of citizens and public authorities. 

The holistic characterization of risk and the introduction in coastal flood management of acceptable risk levels that the population and the administration are willing to assume, are part of the way to achieve the objectives of this project. 

The pilots of this project are La Villa de Garachico and El Puerto de La Cruz (both in the island of Tenerife, Canary islands, Spain) and Praia da Vitória (Terceira island, Azores, Portugal).
