Policy recommendations for coastal area management in the ASEAN region: as discussed by policymakers, administrators and scientists
- Recommendations for coastal area management in the ASEAN region are given, being based on discussions held atthe Workshop which reviewed the current exploitation of coastal resources and examined the severity of degradation of the coastal environment in the region. The most serious management issues were: fishery resource overexploitation; degradation of coastal and marine ecosystems and habitats; declining water quality and pollution; endangered marine spp and coastal wildlife; and low level of institutional capability for integrated coastal area management. Proposed guidelines are included for industrial development and environmental quality; mangrove conversion; shrimp farming and other coastal aquaculture; exploitation of fisheries resources; coral reef protection; reversing the decline of water quality; preventing coastal erosion and sedimentation; tourism development; improving institutional arrangements and capabilities; public awareness; and upgrading legislation.
