This project enabled four ZIP (zone d’intervention prioritaire / priority intervention zone) committees to improve their practical and theoretical knowledge of coastal territories, with the help of the expertise from a trans-sectoral team of college and university researchers. In addition to promoting a participatory culture of acquiring quality geospatial and social data, the project’s innovative co-construction method with the ZIP Committees makes them more autonomous. This also has the advantage of diversifying the players responsible for acquiring fundamental data on the state of the St. Lawrence River system.
