The territorial observation catalyst for collective intelligence of territories [WP3 observation] WP3 Leader Guénaël DEVILLET, ULG, BE New‐LIFE ‐ FP7 project Pecs, june 2-4, 2011
[WP3 observation] ObjectiveThe WP3 Observation will contribute to the change fromterritorial governmental observation systems, which are(traditionally) based on public statistic for the exclusiveservice of policy makers, towards an instrument ofparticipatory governance that combines wider stakeholders,communities and individuals in decision-making in order tomake a lever to the evolution of innovation behaviour.

WP3A combination From theoretical models ofcombined development objectives to indicators, animatedby Philippe WOLOSZYN, CNRS-ESO (France)The environmental concern allows the sustainability trade-off system toretain resilience, while implying a reduction in the self-organization of thesustainability system. Thus, linkages between socio-cultural andecological sustainability will emerge through place-based interactionstudies, evaluated through their informational dimensioning, thereforedefining their resilience capacity. This informational evaluation shouldreveal similarities between economical system, human societies andecological systems, through lifestyle preferences, consumption behaviourand policy rules, underlined by biodiversity and cultural diversitymirroring.Therefore, observed territorial co-evolution of social, economic andecological systems should be able to provide useful insights regardingthe harmonious integration of the three pillars, or ”triple bottom line” ofsustainable development, as new innovative indicators to be applied tothe socio-ecological challenge.
WP3B methods Fundamental methods and generictools for territory analysis, animated bySerge ORMAUX, CNRS-MSHE (France)The purpose of this task is to build on the four major methodologicalparadigms found in the teams which make up the network and questiontheir participatory dimension (actual or potential).These are territorial observation (UFC, among others), fieldwork (UNPL,in connection with a number of specific theoretical research papers),structural geography (UQO, to be combined with an additional dimensionrelated to participation) and landscape mediation (UFC, ULG, andothers). Of course, the aim is to see how it is possible to transcend thesefour points into considering a meta-method, or at least a complex systembased on them. Moreover, for each of these methodological levels, wewill bring up the question of indicators necessary for their implementation.
WP3C indicators Sustainable developmentindicators for local level, animated byClaire HAGGETT, EDINBURGH (United Kingdom).This task will work under the hypothesis that information is moreimportant than tools of treatment and that it constitutes an essential stagein the progression which drives from problems to tools. The concept ofsocio-ecological transition implicates more precisely the combination ofdifferent data to construct a new type of synthesis indicators (task 3A) butthe state of art shows that often, the current offered indicators are eithervery general or too category-specific and they are rarely accessible toterritorial actors (micro scales). This task aims to analyse the availabilityof current and new indicators at local level (secondary indicators) and theprocess through which local actors build up their own indicators (primaryindicators).
WP3D Modelling Modelling territorial informationsystems accessible to sustainable development actors,animated by Sylvie DAMY, CNRS-MSHEThis task aims to make a significant advance in the modelling of“caENTIs Community territorial intelligence systems” that provides arigorous effort in design and formalization of local observatories designedto provide information useful to regional communities.The target is to build the tool of multi-criteria analysis and spatial analysisaround a single, consistent database, accessible online, using free cross-platform solutions, Linux, MySQL, PHP on Drupal. Thus the SCITorganize the information and procedures for dealing with the definition ofdata for publication on the Internet, according to the specific use ofdevelopment partnerships. They also aim to generate a commonlanguage between players of various professional cultures.WP3Da secondary indicators , animated by Celia SANCHEZ,University of Huelva, SpainWP3Db local observation tools , animated by Remi THOMAS,CNRS-MSHE
WP3E web-mapping Design and implementation ofa global web mapping, animated by Peter PEHANI,ZRC SAZU (Slovenia)Fed by task 3C and 3D, this task suggest design and implementation of asocial web mapping system with global ambition, which makes indicatorsat nested regional scales available to the territorial actors, from thecontinental to the sub-municipal level.This would imply reflecting on the management of meta-data, formats,data validation, etc... and training of the interested players how to useweb mapping application.
WP3R report Strengthening local capacities forsocio-ecological transition, animated by GuénaëlDEVILLET, ULG (Belgique).The aim of this task is to integrate the results of task 3A to 3E into asynthetic research report, and to organize the on-line annexes to give alarge access to the details of the results of each task. The results will beconfronted to other different complementary researches funded by FP7 inthe former call for proposals in order to make a disseminable synthesisreport as integrative as possible about main factors involve in promotinga pacific and democratic socio-ecological transition at territorial level.
