  • Integrated coastal zone management in Denmark
  • Coastal environment ; Concept ; Denmark ; Environmental management ; Sustainable development
  • This paper introduces the concept of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) in a definition with relevance for Denmark. Partly influenced by the Rio Conference the Danish government now deals with the concept of a sustainable development
  • of the coastal areas, considering nature and the environment.
  • Improving coastal resource management. A strategy to integrate impacts
  • Coastal resource management strategies sometimes fail when they do not integrate development impacts into the existing ad hoc approach to coastal management. This paper outlines a set of strategies coastal developers may take when confronted
  • by promoting coastal impacts as a new pathway to greater coastal conservation and management opportunities.
  • by the need for change. Because a development and its coastal impact area constitute a connected system, the promotive strategy sees the development-impact area as interdependent. Such a strategy can turn impacts into an expansion of developer concern

  • This paper describes coastal resilience as a measure of the extent to which a coast is able to respond to external pressures without losing actual or potential functions. Coastal resilience has morphological, ecological and socio-economic components

  • Questions of coastal protection and the human response to sea-level rise in Ireland and Britain
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal management ; Coastal protection ; Concept ; England ; Environment ; Global change ; Ireland ; Sea level ; United Kingdom
  • This discussion aims at placing the problems and prospects for effective coastal management in Ireland, and more widely in the British Isles as a whole, in the context of the likely physical environmental changes that might be expected around our
  • coasts into the next century. In particular, the current approaches to coastal management and the lack of coherent national policies in this field are evaluated.
  • A geomorphological approach to sustainable planning and management of the coastal zone of Kuwait
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal geomorphology ; Coastal management ; Coastal protection ; Ecosystem ; Hydrocarbon ; Intertidal zone ; Kuwait ; Land use ; Pollution ; Sediment transport
  • This paper demonstrates how the study of coastal geomorphology can provide a valuable understanding that might form a basis from which planners can develop sound proposals and policies for the sustainable development and management of the coastal
  • region and its resources. The paper is based on work carried out in the mid 1980s as part of a multi-disciplinary research project which aimed to establish an environmental database for the coastal region of Kuwait. The geomorphological information
  • was used to determine the coastal vulnerability and to assess the environmental impacts of development projects.
  • Coastal planning and management in the Netherlands
  • In this article the A. A. describe the governmental framework for coastal planning in relation to urban growth and development, recreational functions of the coastal zone, coastal pollution and the seabound activities. They conclude that real

  • Coastal dynamics ; Coastal environment ; Coastal management ; Drainage ; England ; Human impact ; Intertidal zone ; Stream ; United Kingdom
  • This paper examines the growth and decay of an ephemeral creek system produced in response to a managed realignment at Freiston Shore, The Wash. In addition, the natural and anthropogenically enhanced developments of the creek system are compared.

  • Coastal environment ; Ecosystem ; Environmental management ; Geographical information system ; NOAA ; Numerical model ; Remote sensing ; Spatial variation ; Surface temperature ; Water quality
  • This paper investigates, in particular, the use of different data, including those produced by numerical simulations or ocean models, for coastal management and is illustrated with examples from a Baltic Sea GIS implementation. Implications
  • for the use of these data in environmental management are discussed.
