Final Report - SPEAR (Sustainable options for people, catchment and aquatic resources)

Project ID: 510706
Funded under: FP6-INCO


The SPEAR project was funded by the European Commission and aimed to develop and test a structurally integrated conceptual framework for the interpretation of coastal zone structure and dynamics within areas where communities depended primarily upon marine resources.

Two contrasting coastal systems in China, namely a rural and an industrial area, were intensively analysed for the evaluation of the project proposals. This final activity report refers to these analyses and briefly presents their achievements and conclusions.

The document primarily focuses on the book that was published by the SPEAR consortium, since it summarised the entire project in an effective and holistic way. An overview of its contents is provided. The entire book is then attached to the report.
