Introduction to the SPICOSA project and professional training

workshop aims

SPICOSA = Science and Policy Integration for Coastal Systems Assessment

slide2
Structure:

Facts and figures on SPICOSA

The SPICOSA approach

Key concepts of SPICOSA

Role and aim of this workshop.

slide3
Facts and figures:

FP6 – integrated project (~€14m)

54 partners from EU – mostly academic

13 Work Packages

WP13 – professional training

18 study sites (SSA’s)

Cork WP7.8

slide4
The SPICOSA approach:

Views the coast as a system..well many systems

Popperian domains: physical / mind / information

Domains are incommensurable but interfaceable

Systems Approach is the selected methdology to bring domains together

...but not mechnical – evolving clockwork.

slide6
8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Multiple domains – « worlds »

Hard and soft systems

Models (conceptual, mathematical & numerical)

Hard and soft thinking.

slide7
8 Key concepts of SPICOSA approach:

Cause and effect: DPSIR

Scale (size + resolution)

Multiple perceptions

Support decision making

slide8
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 knowldge to help managers

.....BUT.....

slide9
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 Cork).

slide10
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.

slide11
Role and aim of this workshop:

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

slide12
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.
