Two of the essential questions of spatial planning practices are how to examine the crux of a human environmental issue by systematic analysis and how to collaborate with other disciplines clustered around the crux in order to look for appropriate strategies in response to the issue. Taiwan is an island with 1,566km coastline and consists of numerous coastal land. Under the huge development pressure, the coastal land has been misused and abused, leading to issues of severe land subsidence, coastal disaster, irreversible ecosystem damage, etc. In order to protect and restore coastal resources, and to maintain simultaneously adequate natural systems and human environment, the development of coastal area has to be conducted on the basis of interdisciplinary knowledge, systematic analysis and comprehensive viewpoint. This is a new challenge for spatial planning practices in Taiwan. Based on the understanding, the aim of this course is to generate new approaches to tackle this new agenda by collaborating with relevant disciplinesXsuch as hydraulics and ocean engineering and wetland ecologyXto conduct local practice.
