Introduction to the SPICOSA project and workshop aims

SPICOSA = Science and Policy Integration for Coastal Systems Assessment


Structure:

Facts and figures on SPICOSA.

The SPICOSA approach

Key concepts of SPICOSA

Role and aim of this workshop.


Facts and figures:

FP6 – integrated project (~€14m)

54 partners from EU – mostly academic

13 Work Packages

WP13 – professional training

18 study sites (SSA’s)

Gdansk WP7.2


The SPICOSA approach:

Views the coast as a system with many physical and human elements AND conceptual/ methodological systems to explore and address issues.

Popperian domains: physical/mind/information.

Domains lack a common quality but have points of interaction between them.

Systems Approach is the selected methodology to bring domains together.

...but not mechanical – evolving clockwork.


?

Clocks can change and evolve over time and situation…..

….so can coasts due to natural processes or human management


8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Multiple domains – « worlds ».

Hard and soft systems.

Models (conceptual, mathematical & numerical).

Systems thinking.


8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Cause and effect: DPSIR.

Scale (size + resolution).

Multiple perceptions.

Support decision making.


Role and aim of this workshop:

SPICOSA’s role is to support « decision making processes aiming at improving the sustainability of Coastal Systems.. ».

We don’t « do » management.

We don’t « advise » on management.

We do provide knowledge to help managers.

.....BUT.....


Role and aim of this workshop:

...SPICOSA is an academic framework

....SPICOSA is an uproven approach

.....SPICOSA has the opportunity to be tested out at SSA’s (including Gdansk).


Role and aim of this workshop:

Thus, we wish to « ground truth » the project in management reality.

This involves interacting with « real » people (stakeholders)....like you!

We hope you will gain insights into approaches and ways to view the coastal system.


Role and aim of this workshop:

Thus, the aim of this workshop is « to develop awareness in Gdansk stakeholders of the SPICOSA approach and to jointly ground-truth some key aspects of the Cork site approach».


Role and aim of this workshop:

The workshop is designed to promote interaction, free-thinking & innovation.

Differences of views are supported!

We will facilitate but the result is in your hands.
