MED4EBM: Establishing a stakeholder cooperation and coordination platform for implementing Ecosystem-Based Integrated Coastal Zone Management in Gulf of Aqaba - Jordan
The first workshop, carried out the 2nd, 3rd, 8th and 10th of March (2021), focused the participatory thematic scoping for the EB-ICZM-DSS application. During the second workshop (25th March and 1st April) the stakeholders continue their participatory activity and elaborate diagrams, visual representations of the thematic scoping reports.
The third and final step of the Ecosystem Context Analysis is for the EBM planning team to develop a set of quantitative indicators and indexes to quantitatively characterize each component and sub-component of the system-diagram. All the information and data from technical report, scientific papers as well from any other relevant source will be collected and analysed to enter the proper information. The expected outcomes will be a list of indicators and indexes, written directly in the ISP software, for the EB-ICZM-DSS application in the Gulf of Aqaba. The stakeholders will suggest an indicator (name), a brief description (definition, formulas, essential information), update frequency (helpful in scheduling a recurring surveys; how many times and when do I have to apply the protocol into the field and collect a certain kind of data and/or to calculate an indicator?), data source (where this kind of indicator is used or the data to extrapolate it could be found) and notes (if any).
