Approach

Approach

Planning an ICZM program through:

  • Monitoring by remote sensing and ground based techniques and identifying hot pollution spots.

  • Identifying and assessing changes in the area by high resolution imageries

  • Building and analysis of a GIS for the region (topography, layers of vegetation and types, wetland, aquaculture, archeology, residential, industrial installations, land based pollution sources…)

  • Putting forward an integrated coastal zone management plan for development and identifying suitable areas for tourism projects.

  • Carrying out a strategic environmental assessment of the plan.

  • Promoting and communicating the study as a pilot study that can be replicated at other similar areas along the coast.
