Integration of local knowledge in the development of environmental sensitivity maps
The environmental sensitivity maps would be envisaged as an elaborated scheme exchanging knowledge among numerous stakeholders at decision-making and execution levels. Local knowledge, scientific knowledge and public knowledge are required to associate toward the development of environmental sensitivity maps, particularly the identification of shoreline types and its sensitivity; compiling biology, human-use resource information; ranking, prioritising sensitive sites and resources at risk. Especially, the value of local knowledge has been recognised over time and the need for its effective integration into research and development has grown significantly. One of the options to enhance the role of this knowledge should be participatory tools emphasising researchers-facilitation to obtain indigenous perceptions as well as increase environmental sensitivity maps adoption in the planning, regulatory community in islands and coastal areas.
