Review of existing institutional mandates, policies & laws relating to coastal management

The Namibian government has embarked upon a new chapter in terms of managing its coast. It has recognised the huge potential for development in this unique environment and it is determined to ensure that this development is sustainable.

Achieving the right balance between conservation and development is a huge challenge. Meeting this challenge requires a systematic approach that combines scientific analysis, stakeholder consultations, adaptive management, forging strong partnerships and the courage to try new ideas.

This report highlights the key issues and options that might best be pursued in order to achieve improved and more effective management and development on the Namibian coast. This report is not a “position paper”. Instead, it is a discussion paper that will hopefully stimulate thoughts and reactions and through this, help the Namibian government to implement with vigour effective and efficient Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) system for Namibia.in the months and years ahead.
