The Lingayen Gulf coastal area management plan
- In the Philippines, the Lingayen Gulf coastal area is an ideal site for the pilot testing of resource managementinitiatives that can be adopted to other coastal areas of the country. It is the major fishing ground of northwestern Luzon. The majority of the population surrounding towns is dependent on coastal resources, especially living marine resources, for food, income and employment. The capture fisheries, aquaculture and tourism sectors of the gulf are important to the regional economy. Details are given of a management plan which attempt to lay the foundations for the sustainable development of the Lingayen Gulf coastal area. It contains a brief review of the more important resource management issues and problems and presents programs and projects on fisheries management, rehabilitation of critical and linked habitats, environmental quality management, coastal zonation, alternative livelihood, aquaculture and institutional development to assess these issues. The plan also outlines institutional arrangements for plan implementation.
