Discovery Modelling Mediation Deliberation: Interface Tools for Multi-stakeholder Knowledge Partnerships for the Sustainable Management of Marine Resources and Coastal Zones

Objective

The PASARELAS project will accompany existing INCODEV research projects on coastal and marine fisheries resources with the aim of maximising research impact through the development of stakeholder dialogue "interfaces" between science and society. The consortium will ally multi-stakeholder participatory approaches with multimedia information and visualisation technologies for Building Knowledge Partnerships for Sustainable Development.

Learning about environmental governance challenges is achieved by participation in procedures (real or simulated) of selection and deployment of indicator systems (e.g., computer supported visualisation of scenarios and territories, and multi-criteria evaluation of alternative scenarios for land use, for ecosystem protection and management, for fisheries regulation and marketing, etc.).

The multimedia tools and participation processes will be demonstrated through exploitation of data, models and institutional knowledge from ongoing INCODEV research projects, engaging policy authorities, territorial administrations, higher education, private sector interests (e.g., fisheries, tourism, coastal zone agriculture), with outreach perspectives to civil society in its various forms. Documentation will be produced using on-line resources, CD-Rom, printed documents, and popular media (posters, video presentations, etc.).

An important goal will be to define in technical and legal terms, the basis for a permanent education-training-outreach programme including pedagogic materials (1) diffused as free web-based interfaces, (2) as products to be made available through "public good" exploitation agreements for teaching and learning contexts including schools, universities and territorial administrations, (3) as basis for professional services useful to research institutions, companies, community networks and regulatory agencies.
