EU Supports Wales and Ireland Coastal Projects

More than EUR4 million of EU funds will help to safeguard heritage and coastal tourism sites in Wales and Ireland from the risks of climate change, the Welsh Government informs.

The funding will also provide a stimulus for marine-based economic growth in the two countries.

Funded by the European Union’s Ireland-Wales program, the CHERISH project (Climate, Heritage and Environments of Reefs, Islands and Headlands) will support specialist organisations in Wales and Ireland to employ the technologies to analyse coastal and island archaeology and maritime heritage sites, which are most affected by climate change, coastal erosion and rising sea levels.

It will fund new excavations, environmental studies, marine mapping and landscape modelling.

The collaborative research has the potential to help safeguard coastal and heritage sites from the risk of climate change and minimize negative impacts on local economies.
