This paper discusses the potential contribution of indicators to assess the performance of the governance processes involved in integrated coastal management, focusing on the evaluation phase and the need to complement process-oriented indicators with outcome-oriented indicators to improve adaptive management and accountability. The example of integrated management of marine protected areas is used to propose a menu of indicators of global applicability.
