WINTER aims to develop a web interactive platform for the management of coal regions in transition to provide guidance and facilitate stakeholder engagement. The best practices will be identified by exchanging information and knowledge regarding the main transition challenges in each of the pilot regions representing different stages of the transition process.

The potential users of the web management tool (coal industry and stakeholders involved in the environmental management of such sites, research organizations, energy sector, socioeconomic organizations, policy makers, public health organizations, local authorities and environmental legislation consultants.) will be identified and familiarized with the platform with main aim to enhance the available information that is required to improve the current transition plans for the pilot regions being at an initial stage.

The produced web management tool will be designed properly in order to can be easily used by the local authorities and coal sector stakeholders as well as to be extended to other areas facing similar issues.
