Short summary
For many subsiding coastal areas, solutions to subsidence are readily available, but difficult to implement. To facilitate decision making and implementation of measures to subsidence, a sound and shared knowlegde base is required. But how to start creating such a knowledge base? This paper presents a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to address land subsidence, illustrated by best practise examples from around the world. This 6M approach will contribute to lowering the threshold to act.
