Paradigm Shifts, Coastal Zones, and Adaptation to Fast-Paced Change

Abstract : Rapid changes are an integral part of what defines the dynamic nature of coastal systems. Yet the twenty-first century will be increasingly characterized by an even greater pace of change. In this chapter we argue that, in order to face this acceleration, one needs to transcend the traditional organization of science. We further argue that this transcendence must be locally driven, implemented, and translated into policies. In order to support these claims, we use climate change as a case study. This involves conducting a gap analysis of the current practice of science. We conclude by presenting a project aimed at initiating the paradigm shift that is called for.
