The Heritage Council commissioned the Coastal and Marine Resources Centre in Cork to carry out a review of best practice in Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) at a national and international scale.Read MoreRead Less
The aim of the report is to:
- Providing a succinct review of best practice procedures for ICZM.
- Summarising the findings of those practices most commonly used at different levels of administration and those that seemed to be more site/area specific.
Common principles were identified from international projects, particularly the EU Demonstration projects, including the Bantry Bay Charter. Examination of the Irish experience of ICZM formed a substantial section of the research. Techniques in the implementation of the ICZM and mechanisms to engage the public and other involved agencies are also reviewed.
