Innovative research and management for coastal restoration: The REST-COAST Summer Workshop

23 February 2023

Coastal regions provide some of the most productive and biodiverse environments with an important and often underappreciated carbon storage potential, combined with the highest densities of population, assets and cultural heritage in the world. However, coastal management is often based on single-sided use of resources proven unsustainable in the long term as the associated environmental pressures remain unresolved. In accordance with this, REST-COAST is focused on delivering comprehensive and sustainable solutions for large-scale restoration and coastal management, ensuring the longevity of coastal biodiversity and ecosystem services.

REST-COAST is eager to announce the project’s first Summer Workshop “Innovative research and management for coastal restoration,” which will take place between 13 and 15 March 2023 in Maldonado, Uruguay.

Hosted at Centro Universitario Regional del Este (CURE), Maldonado the event will be led by REST-COAST consortium partners and the Universidad de la República, as well as external experts. The summer workshop is open for all interested students and researchers in the field of marine biodiversity, ecosystem services, nature-based solutions (NbS) and coastal management, mitigation and adaptation.
