Project Areas

The 5 year CHERISH project will focus on priority stretches of coastline and sea within the funding area of the Ireland-Wales 2014-2020 Programme. Coastal and island project work will focus on areas of soft and eroding coastline, low-lying areas vulnerable to sea-level rise and inundation, coastal lagoons and wetlands with high palaeoenvironmental potential and areas which represent data and knowledge gaps. Maritime survey areas will complement coastal priority zones and will target undersea wrecks of high archaeological, historical and climate change potential. The selected areas are geologically distinct with significant cultural heritage sites represented in each of the areas. Different approaches, methodologies and recording practices are to be implemented on the various sites to develop best practice for recording cultural heritage at risk due to weather and coastal processes that are being accelerated by climate change.
