What was the identified solution?

• Since the founding of the Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation the cooperation has gradually developed and broadened its scope from the protection of the Wadden Sea to include the management of the coastal zone (especially in Denmark)

• A focus on cooperation between world heritage areas in all three countries

• Personal knowledge and mutual trust between government officials can create an environment beneficial to cross-border cooperation.

• In a non-legally binding cooperation, respect for the others’ point of view is necessary.

• A skilled and professional ‘nexus’ (e.g. a Secretariat) can prove useful to maintain a strong cooperation.
