COSS-TT online meeting (1), June 2021

Welcome to the first Coastal Ocean and Shelf Seas Task Team (COSS-TT) virtual meeting. We are pleased to take this opportunity to invite COSS-TT members and guests to discuss how the COSS-TT would contribute to the “United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development” and specifically the Task Team’s potential involvement in “CoastPredict” and “ForeSea” that have been submitted for consideration to be endorsed as official UN Decade programmes. In addition to programmes, the UN Ocean Decade will endorse “Communities of Practice”, where several programmes will contribute. The COSS-TT co-chairs have been actively involved in these activities (and also with the SynObs project that has been submitted from the OS-Eval TT) and are eager to share outcomes with all COSS-TT members and to determine actions going forward.

Provisional outline

  1. Presentations of the status of relevant UN Ocean Decade programmes (focus on CoastPredict and ForeSea, including SynObs). Q/A on programmes, including possible funding aspects.
  2. Presentations of specific science topics supporting COSS-TT/UN Decade engagement
  3. Round-table discussion where each member speaks in turn of their vision of the UN Ocean Decade, of the role of the TT, of any current or potential involvement, on any programmatic and funding opportunities. In particular, members should be prepared to inform the TT about any national or international actions already planned or ongoing within the Decade in their parts of the world (please be ready for that).
  4. Discussions on specific questions (see below).
  5. Summary/vision by the TT co-chairs, with general discussion

 

Preliminary list of questions for discussion:

  • The COSS-TT is a natural steering and executive part of the ForeSea UN Ocean Decade programme, proposed by OceanPredict as a whole. On the other hand, the Task Team is well represented in the coordination (co-chair) and Steering Committee of the CoastPredict proposed programme.  How can we (as an OceanPredict Task Team) seize this opportunity of playing a very active role at connecting the large-scale and coastal efforts over the next decade?
  • Should we expand our Terms of Reference, for instance towards more societal aspects? (sustainable development, coastal resilience, coastal vulnerability, etc.)
  • Should we expand our scientific objectives?
  • How can we engage TT members and affiliates (including COSS community members) for developing international projects/activities during the Decade?
  • What are the opportunities for funding? What will have the highest chance of getting funded?
  • Could we come up with a short list of outstanding goals for the TT, and a very approximate calendar of what would be feasible?
