Sustaining our Coasts: The Ridge-to-Reef Approach | A Compilation of Technical and Policy Papers (Part 2)

This book is the seventh in a compilation of ten technical and policy papers on Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) in the Philippines. The compilation entitled Sustaining our Coasts: The Ridge-to-Reef Approach aims to provide decision makers, managers and field implementers with a sound policy environment for ICM.

Review of Integrated Coastal Zone Management and Principles of Best Practice

<p>This report compiles existing information, to inform the Heritage Council about the issues to be considered when formulating ideas concerning approaches to Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) in Ireland. The report should provide increased understanding of the process of ICZM to facilitate future policy development.</p>

Guidelines for Integrated Coastal Zone Management

<p>In both developed and developing countries the coastal zone is likely to undergo the most profound change in the near future. Already more than 60 percent of the world's population lives within 60 kilometers of the coast. By the turn of the century two-thirds of the population (3.7 billion) in developing countries is expected to occupy the coast. Consequently, unless careful environmental management and planning are instituted, severe conflicts over coastal space and resource utilization are likely, and the degradation of natural resources will close development options.

From Sectoral to Integrated Coastal Management: A Case In Xiamen, China

<p>Xiamen has been selected as a demonstration site for the GEF/UNDP/IMO Regional Programme for the Prevention and Management of Marine Pollution in the East Asian Seas. Its purpose is to test a working model for the application of an integrated coastal management system for mitigating marine pollution, rapid economic development. The paper outlines the success in ICM institutional development at the local level, particularly the establishment of decision-making mechanisms based on consensus building among major stakeholders, and inputs from science and technology.

Donor Evaluations of ICM Initiatives: What Can Be Learned from them?

<p>The experience of 19 donor agencies and international organizations with evaluation of ICM initiatives is surveyed to analyze the diferences in the evaluative purposes and methodologies and their relevance to a `learning-based approach to ICM. We group evaluation into three broad categories: performance evaluation, management capacity assessment and outcomes evaluation. Performance evaluations address the quality of project implementation, and the degree to which project goals are achieved.
