Agenda (Version 0.1 of 2010-2-20 1:20)
Assessment of the process and consequences of the Workshop Series:
Are we achieving what we wanted?
If not, what have we achieved so far?
Could we have organized the past workshops better?
Are there some concrete post workshop activities that need to be done?
Puerto Rico Workshop: Status and next steps
Cairo Workshop: Status and next steps
What is the structure and membership of the CZCP?
CZCP membership: How to handled EoIs and Membership applications?
How does one join? Is the 'You and the CZCP'-page sufficient? Inputs received so far are available
How do we get the most from the CZCP membership?
What positive feedback can occur to maintain the program and help it grow?
CZCP mailing list: What activities are needed? Proposal: (simple) E-mail newsletter is being sent
out every three months by the co-chairs, informing on the CZCP members/interested about the status,
current activities, and updated plans. The newsletter would accept input from all members.
Should we engage in AIP-3, and, if yes, how should we engage?
More information on AIP-3 is available
. Note that under the SBA Water,
there is a scenario on algae bloom, which could be of interest for us.
What document should the CZCP produce?
The IGOS Coastal Zone Theme
for OceanObs 09 are examples
of useful documents.
Are there others that we should be developing? Updated Theme Report? A State of the CZ-Report?
How do we attract financial and other support for our efforts?
We need to entrain policy makers and/or relevant issues into the workshops. Can the GEO
Secretariat help with this?
Are we "a success story of communities of practice"?
Should we establish a "roadmap" for the CZCP? Should this be done in a CZCP Workshop? When?
