A territory-science partnership
In the “Couesnon watershed” ALICE case study, a first partnership was established between two scientists (a geographer and an ecologist) and the local water management body (SAGE Couesnon).
After some preliminary discussions, the person in charge of the SCOT (Scheme of territorial coherence) planning was invited to join the process as well as a government agency representative.
The SCOT is a land planning tool and in particular, devises the implementation of Blue and Green Infrastructure Network strategies on the territories. This core team of Science-SAGESCOT- Government agency is a solid partnership to design BGIN strategies on the Couesnon watershed.
