The ENCORA 1st Theme Workshop, which took place in Valencia, Spain, November 29 – December 1, 2006, aimed at elaborating a new concept in sharing European knowledge and experience in integrated coastal management: The European Wiki Coastal Directory. The Coastal Directory (or Coastal Wiki) will provide a survey of existing coastal knowledge and experience in Europe, with references to the most relevant sources published in the literature and on the Internet. It is intended for use in daily practice by professionals in coastal science, practice and policy. It will be embedded in WIKIMEDIA software, allowing expert users to update the directory at any time with new knowledge. Coastal Wiki should become a major tool for keeping coastal professionals informed of recent developments and new major knowledge sources in their field.
PAP/RAC is ENCORA project partner and will provide its expertise in the field. The Director of PAP/RAC participated at the Workshop in Valencia.
