    This group report gives an overview of applications of and issues in integrated assessment (IA) applied in the coastal zone area in Europe. We conclude that there are various reasons why IA is sometimes not successful. For instance, integrated assessment tends to be highly specific, dialogues are seldom an integral part and environmental thresholds are uncertain. A way forward would be to have an alternative framework that could fulfil some of these needs, which is proposed at the end of the chapter.
