Comunidades Locais e Utilização do Ambiente Marinho

Category: 2018

SumárioEste workshop incluirá, numa primeira jornada, uma apresentação do projecto PADDLE e da utilização do ambiente marinho. Este workshop será uma ocasião para partilha de experiências, com especial destaque para o papel das comunidades locais.Ao longo da segunda jornada será desenvolvida uma sessão especial sobre os desafios ligados à utilização do ambiente marinho em África. Durante o workshop será ainda desenvolvido um exercício prático com a ferramenta SeaSketch (ferramenta de apoio à cartografia colaborativa para os oceanos – visualização e recolha de dados de participação pública). Este exercício permitirá demostrar o papel que as comunidades locais têm na construção das políticas de utilização do ambiente marinho.

Foundations of Marine Spatial Planning

Category: 2018
Increased activity in the coastal and marine environment has led to two important types of conflicts in the region: (1) conflicts among human uses (user-user conflicts); and (2) conflicts between human uses and the coastal and marine environment (user-environment conflicts). These conflicts weaken the ability of the ocean to provide the necessary ecosystem services upon which humans and all other life depend on. This course provides an introductory, but comprehensive, overview of CMSP. It focuses on describing a logical sequence of all the steps required to achieve desired goals and objectives for coastal and marine areas. This course does not focus on the technical details of any one of the steps and it is not intended to be a course that will help to develop a marine GIS or implement a …

Geospatial Techniques for Coastal Mapping and Monitoring (using QGIS)

Category: 2018

Geospatial science provides vital information for the sustainable planning of the use of the coastal resources. This course provides an overview of GIS applications pertaining to coastal mapping. It will provide the basic GIS mapping techniques on coastal erosion, mangrove and coral reef using open source GIS tools. The course also includes data acquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation of coastal spatial data. In addition, extensive hands on sessions will be conducted to use tools for preparation of thematic base maps for coastal monitoring.

OTGA/KMFRI/UNEP Marine Spatial Planning

Category: 2018
Marine spatial planning (MSP) arises as a public process of analysing and allocating the spatial and temporal distribution of human activities in marine areas to achieve ecological, economic, and social objectives that usually have been specified through a political process. By mapping activities and determining the space for each activity, the process provides a characterization of current uses and helps to establish potential areas for future uses. This enables a policy process  to better determine how maritime zones are sustainably used and protected, now and for the future of African generations. This course will provide an overview of the MSP process, taking into consideration Africa’s specific needs and the 2050 African Integrated Maritime Strategy  as well as the expected impa…

Ocean Literacy and Story Telling Maps/Conocimiento del Océano y Cartografía Narrativa

Category: 2017
Overview Many regions of the world are currently promoting ocean literacy and are looking to different approaches to its implementation which includes an active role for citizens to have a much stronger input into identifying research and innovation priorities. Coastal Web Atlases (CWA) and web GIS have decades of experience promoting coastal and ocean literacy amongst specialized experts, policy makers and general public showing how coastal and marine data and information is shared, visualized and communicated. Aims and Objectives In line with the “Ocean Literacy for All” initiative coordinated by IOC-UNESCO, this workshop will focus on the following three goals related to ocean literacy to 1) Encourage cooperation and exchange on ocean education to improve ocean literacy f…
