‘Compendium for Coast and Sea’ Expert Group

The Compendium for Coast and Sea is an integrated information document on the socio-economic, ecological and institutional aspects of the coast and sea in Flanders and Belgium The information is the result of close cooperation with a network of experts from policy and the scientific community.

The establishment of this Expert Group in 2011 fitted in with the integrated character of the Compendium for Coast and Sea. The development process of the Compendium is based on a dynamic interaction between the Expert Group, the co-authors, the readers and VLIZ. The Expert Group determines the contents in close consultation and feedback with the Scientific Board of VLIZ. The aim of this Expert Group is fourfold:

  • Determine and validate the content and structure of the Compendium for Coast and Sea.
  • Monitor and assess the proceedings and the development process of the Compendium for Coast and Sea.
  • Adjust the (communication) strategy and make the most of new opportunities.
  • Assure the quality of the knowledge document and the final products.

The ‘Compendium for Coast and Sea’ Expert Group consists of a well-balanced representation of experts from policy, civil society organisations as well as from the scientific community, and includes several co-authors, the VLIZ team and possibly members of the Scientific Board. This Expert Group guided the first and second version of the Compendium for Coast and Sea (2013 and 2015) and is also involved in the trajectory of the Compendium for Coast and Sea 2018 (due in December). The Expert Group will also participate in the evaluation of the development process and the next steps to be taken so as to determine the updates.
