The book concludes that better integration of integrated coastal zone management requires: a) building consensus on national coastal management priorities; b) supporting innovative local initiatives; c) developing quantifiable indicators of change in the coastal zone; and d) strengthening institutional capacity and partnerships in the form Integrated Coastal Zone Management for Coral Reefs book international maritime agreements.

Coral reef managers and government officials trying to save their valuable national resources have turned to research on coral reefs for help. The research presented in this publication merits a great deal of notice because the output is useful for decision support and training tools in integrated coastal zone management (ICZM).Author: Jack Ruitenbeek.
