A multi-stakeholder platform involving relevant actors, based on participatory and interactive sessions – Living Labs – will be designed and implemented by Partners in each case study.
Key stakeholders interested in the implementation of innovative governance of the studied sites taking into account their priorities but also their constraints will be considered. The consolidation and sustainment of the active engagement of the main concerned socio-economic actors (ensuring public-private-people partnership) through their early-implication to the overall management and efficient governance of the coastal aquifers of the selected case study sites are two of the Sustain-COAST objectives. To this end, five Living Labs in each case study will be co-designed and organized. The ultimate goal of this task is to promote social learning spaces, where integrated scientific and local knowledge will be developed to support decision-makers in the design of adaptive pathways for the local communities regarding sustainable water resources systems.
