Co-creating evidence-based business roadmaps and policy solutions for enhancing coastal-rural collaboration and synergies


Jean-Luc gave an interview on a topic concerning the impact of land-use change, modelled with the VITO Ruimtemodel, on coastal campings near the coastal town of Bredene, a tourist resort along the Belgian coast.  These campings have an important social function for less wealthy tourists who cannot afford to buy an apartment or book a hotel room.  Under some scenarios, these campings could disappear due to ongoing urbanization. 

 A short summary video of our last stakeholder workshop (roundtable) at Mar Menor, where we presented and discussed with stakeholders the Business Roadmap and its impacts.
Este es el video completo del evento final del Proyecto H2020 COASTAL, que tuvo lugar el 3 de Junio de 2022 en Murcia, y donde científicos del CEBAS-CSIC presentan una Hoja de Ruta con 14 soluciones para el desarrollo sostenible del Mar Menor y su entorno en el campo de Cartagena, y los impactos de su implementación sobre un conjunto de indicadores de sostenibilidad ambiental, económica y social, que han sido simulados con un modelo de dinámica de sistemas desarrollado dentro del proyecto. El modelo y los resultados del proyecto COASTAL han sido co-diseñados junto con representantes y expertos de los sectores agrícola, turismo, salineras y pesca, administraciones públicas, poblaciones locales organizadas, ONG's e investigación, a lo largo de un proceso participativo que se inició en 2018.
