Integrating stakeholder interests into eco-engineering projects
This report describes stakeholder engagement in eco-engineering projects based on the experience during the Ecostructure project. General considerations about involving stakeholders from industry, government, wider society and academia are introduced, as well as methods for successful engagement. A variety of formats for interaction are described, from high-level to design workshops, site visits and one-to-one meetings. The guidelines will assist eco-engineering project managers with involving stakeholders from the initial eco-engineering concept development to the delivery of the project.
Coastal Enhancements Guidance
Guidance document by regulator Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to provide information and demonstrable evidence on the benefits and value for money case of using ecological enhancements in coastal flood defence schemes.
Potential market demand for coastal eco-engineering
This report seeks to show eco-engineering organisations and enterprises can use their contacts, knowledge and research outputs to work with a variety of partners and other actors in the future to add value and to support various organisations in achieving their goals of net biodiversity gain in the coastal built environment.
