Architecture and roadmap to manage multiple pressures on lagoons (ARCH)

Architecture and roadmap to manage multiple pressures on lagoons is a research project to develop methodologies to manage the multiple problems affecting lagoons in Europe.

The project is funded by the The Seventh Framework Programme for research and technological development (FP7) of the European Commission. Thematically the project belongs to Cooperation Theme 6 Environment (including climate change). The project team is composed of 11 institutions from nine European countries and coordinated by Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI).

ARCH will develop participative methodologies in collaboration with the involved managers, policy makers and stakeholders to manage the multiple problems affecting lagoons in Europe. This will generate realistic solutions and provide roadmaps for their implementation at the lagoon scale.

The project is organised in six work-packages and comprises 10 case study sites across Europe.
