Improving participation and coordination in ecosystem services-oriented planning strategies, mainly through local assessments of ecosystem services in terrestrial and marine domains.
Improved spatial planning, enhanced understanding of the value of coastal ecosystem services, and increased stakeholder engagement in marine-terrestrial spatial planning through the use of innovative tools and participatory models.
The DP is integrated into two different policy actions with an illustrative focus : the revision process of the terrestrial management plan, with a focus on the national action plan for Papangue (raptor bird) conservation, and the marine spatial planning process, with a focus on shark risk as a disservice. Due to this comprehensive integration, the project will involve stakeholders at different policy levels, including French state regional institutions, the Reunion Island regional council, local Municipalities, a bird conservation NGO and the Shark Security Centre. The project aims at using innovative spatial planning tools and participatory processes to support integrated marine-terrestrial spatial planning . To achieve these objectives, it will focus on the use of data, knowledge, and tools developed in other EU-funded projects to explore the relationship between past/current/future spatial planning efforts and ecosystem services provision.
