Science and Policy Integration for COastal Systems Assessment
The ultimate goal of SPICOSA is the development of a holistic research method for comprehensive investigations and evaluations of coastal systems. Integrated coastal management will be promoted and optimized using current scientific knowledge, and ecological methods and models will be linked to economic analyses and methods to create a systematic approach. This approach will be tested and systematically improved and generalized in 18 regional case studies, including the Oder estuary.
Tasks of the EUCC-D: Cooperation in terms of the Oder estuary regional case study, support with public relations and result dissemination, regular dissemination of project information in the Küsten Newsletter.
Duration: February 2007 through January 2011.
