It is one of the most important educational facilities in north-western Germany and specializes in interdisciplinary studies. Within the scope of the program INTERREG of the EU the CPA project is being executed in the project cluster "European sustainable coastal areas": Climate Proof Areas, coastal communities ready for a changing world (Focus: Development and implementation of climate adaption strategies at the level of communities)

The common aim of all of these projects is to develop strategies and precise measures which help coastal regions of the North Sea to solve their problems occurring with coping with the consequences of climate change. Furthermore, the tasks are to master their structural development and to make important contributions to climate protection. The University of Oldenburg is co-ordinator of Work Package 3 in the CPA project and will formulate policy recommendations.
