The article emphasizes multi-disciplinary collaboration across government and stakeholders and suggests actions such as nature-based coastal protection, comprehensive assessments, and strategic planning. The goal is to develop a resilient management framework that adeptly manages Romania’s coastal ecological, socio-economic, and cultural complexities.
