"The target audience for this set of guidelines is consulting engineers or engineering officers and officials of local authorities dealing with coastal protection schemes. The guidelines are also of relevance in providing a briefing of current best practice for local and national planning authorities, statutory agencies and other stakeholders in the coastal zone." "The guidelines have been drafted in a generic way to be appropriate throughout the European Union, taking into account current European Commission policy and directives for the promotion of sustainable development and integrated coastal zone management."--BOOK JACKET." ;
