This Project aims at establishing a coastal observatory integrating remote sensing and citizen science to analyze vulnerability, support decision-making, and formulate policies for climate change adaptation in the Amazon River Mouth region.
Coastal and marine systems are very dynamic in space and time and highly vulnerable to climate change and sea level rise. Coastal monitoring is essential to manage impacts and provide information for mitigation, adaptability of populations. Remote sensing combined with volunteered geographic information, is an important tool for continuous coastal observation and can win challenges of information gaps, mainly in remote areas like Amazon river mouth.
The project propose the creation of an Observatory in the region of Amazon River Mouth and adjacent coast, integrating remote sensing tools and Citizen Science to analyze coastal vulnerability. The Observatory will contribute to the support decision-making and formulation of public policies for mitigation and adaptation to climate change. This initiative involves stakeholders of research, education, civil society, environment and Civil Defense. The proposal is part of the Mobilization Support Group for the Oceanic Decade (GAMs), northern Brazil.
