"In fact, Olsen (2002) asserts that coastal management practices evolves through three stages of development. Starting with Enhanced Sectoral Management which focuses upon the management of a single sector or topic but explicitly addresses impacts and interdependencies with other sectors and the ecosystems affected. In the second stage, CZM develops a multi-sectoral management approach which focuses upon both development and conservation issues within narrow, geographically delineated stretches of coastline and near shore waters. Finally, it is converted to ICZM which expands the cross-sectoral features of coastal zone management combined and integrated with ecosystem processes within coastal watersheds and oceans. It explicitly defines its goal in terms of progress towards more sustainable forms of developmentâ¦ Hossam Samir Ibrahim, DECENTRALIZATION IN THE EGYPTIAN COASTAL MANAGEMENT
The Journal of Coastal Development provides an international platform where students, authors and researchers from different linguistic environments have the opportunity to publish their valuable scientific experience in the field of costal development, from their native language to English or from English to other international languages including French, German and Spanish. We believe that the newly launched OMICS Translation Services, is a guarantee for quicker and larger information exchange between scientists, and a key component for future research.
