COASTAL & MARINE 16-2: Recalling ICZM – Insights from the Baltic

The BONUS BaltCoast project published the first out of three special issues of the Coastal & Marine Magazine. “Recalling ICZM – Insights from the Baltic” gives an introduction to the BONUS BaltCoast project, as well as to a Systems Approach Framework for the sustainable management of the Baltic Sea, which is implemented by the project. The issue sets a special focus on the re-analysis of ICZM case studies in the Baltic Sea Region.

Ce séminaire, intitulé : « Un réseau de scientifiques et d’acteurs du littoral atlantique pour la gestion des risques côtiers » a pour objectif de faire connaître la renaissance du réseau ANCORIM (Atlantic Network for Coastal Risks Management) qui sera pilotée par EUCC-Atlantique. 3 tables rondes seront organisées, sur les questions de l’érosion côtière, de la submersion, et de la qualité des eaux marines et côtières.

Si ces thèmes vous intéressent et si vous souhaitez participer ou simplement suivre la renaissance d’ANCORIM, inscrivez vous sur le site de l’évènement :

Atelier EUCC-France dans la baie de Txingudi à Hendaye, 8 et 9 mars 2016

cropped-bidasoa-c-blog

L’aspect transfrontalier de la baie de Txingudi est un point essentiel de cet atelier et sera donc mis en avant au travers de plusieurs thématiques envisagées où les gestions françaises et espagnoles seront abordées :

  • Les problèmes d’envasement de la baie
  • La protection des habitats et espèces d’intérêt communautaire
  • La gestion transfrontalière de l’estuaire de la Bidassoa
  • Conflits d’usage et impacts de l’urbanisation
  • Le « Coastal squeeze » et l’élévation du niveau de la mer
  • La qualité des eaux marines en liaison avec le bassin versant

 
Vous trouverez de plus amples renseignements, dont le programme actualisé, et un bulletin d’inscription à renvoyer avant le 05 février 2016 en suivant le lien :

Littoral 2016 “The changing littoral. Anticipation and adaptation to climate change”

Call for abstracts now open. Dead line: 1st February 2016. Registration now open

logo_litLittoral 2016 “The changing littoral. Anticipation and adaptation to climate change” is the 13th conference of the traditional biennial international event of the Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC). This NPO/NGO was founded in 1989 to promote coastal conservation and sustainable development. It wanted to bridge the gap between scientists, environmentalists, site managers, planners and policy makers. It is presently the largest network of coastal experts in Europe with 15 national branches and several regional offices (the last one “EUCC-Centre Atlantique” was created in 2015 in Biarritz). EUCC-France, the French branch, is proud to organize this conference in Biarritz.

PROPOSED THEMES

The proposed scientific sessions will be organized in three main thematic groups:

  • “Green coasts. Natural and resilient coasts”,
    • Integrated coastal zone management and climate change in different coastal environments
    • Coastal geomorphology in relationship with climate change (shoreline mobility, storm effects…)
    • Biodiversity, priority Habitats and species conservation
    • Ecosystem services
    • New tools and methods for coastal survey (GIS, remote sensing, LiDAR, simulations and modelling)
    • Current and recent sea-level rising and climate change adaptation
  • “Clean seas. Protection of the marine environment”,
    • Marine strategy Directive implementation to achieve Good Environmental Status (GES)
    • Addressing pressures and impacts (e.g. marine litter, underwater noise, eutropication…)
    • Quality of coastal and sea water (implementation of Water Framework Directive)
    • Coastal environment conservation and climate change
    • Innovative measures and initiatives to address GES (e.g. joint monitoring programmes and plans of measures)
  • “Blue growth; Sustainable development in the coastal and marine environment”.
    • Land-Sea Interactions (ICM) to support Maritime Spatial Planning
    • Adaptation of Coastal and Marine Policies, Legislations and Planning face to climate change
    • Sustainable and Green tourism
    • Ports and marinas development
    • Coastal protection infrastructures and engineering. Working with nature and ecologic engineering
    • Green energies
    • Fisheries and aquaculture
    • Sustainable development and coastal hazards in overseas island face to climate change (especially in the “RUP” – Outermost regions)

2nd Iberoamerican Congress on Integrated Coastal Zone Management

The 2nd Iberoamerican Congress on Integrated Coastal Zone Management emphasizes
the “Governance for ecosystem services in coasts and oceans”and will be held in Florianó
polis, SC, Brazil, from the 3rd to the 6th of May 2016. The 2nd ICZM Iberoamerica Congress
intends to give continuity to the goals set in the 1st ICZM Iberoamerica Congress held in
Cádiz, 2012, working on the development of a regional framework for the exchange of
experiences and knowledge that will improve the governance for the coastal sustainability
in Iberoamerica.
The focus of this second edition, the ecosystem based management (EBM), is an approach
that links the environmental health to the human well-being, as the environment provides
valuable natural services, or “Ecosystem Services” to human communities. These services
depend on the complexity of ecosystems, the connections among them, the link between
land, fresh and salt water, and their integration with the human beings. The application of
EBM in marine environments is new, happening mostly as an answer to the deteriorating
state of its ecosystems. This necessity overlaps with the “Aichi Biodiversity Targets”, defined
in the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity for the period from 2011 to 2020.
The Florianopolis Declaration, one of the main objectives of the event, will be the result of
collaboration between assistants and members of the Scientific Committee, and will achie
ve a “framework for the governance of coastal and marine ecosystem services”, with the
ambition to serve as reference for decision-makers and the scientific community.
Given the Ibero-American scope of this Congress, the official languages will be Spanish and
Portuguese. Nevertheless, communications (oral and posters) will be accepted in English.
