Scheibe, R.. ICZM and Tourism - A Field Study. The Present State and the Future Challenges for Tourism in the Odra Lagoon Region. In: Schernewski, G., Glaeser, B., Scheibe, R., Sekścińska, A., Thamm, R. (eds.). Coastal Development: The Oder estuary and beyond. Coastline Reports (8), pp. 59-67.

Tourism is one of the important economic sectors in the Odra Lagoon Region and strongly affects the coastal development. The existing problems are manifold and have been the topic of the Greifswald sub-project of the scientific joint project ICZM-Oder. Water based tourism has achieved only a satisfactory level: Despite the growing number of moorings, the network of existing ports is not perfect. New marinas should be developed as a mixture of a traditional and a modern infrastructure and the thoughts of sustainability should be respected. Maritime tourism must be integrated into reviving maritime awareness and combined with maritime traditions of merchant shipping and the navy and the likes. The existing protected areas guarantee an effective protection but also play a decisive role in the development of tourism. The history of the landscape and the character of the man-made landscape should be adequately respected. Due to the coastal character, the water-based tourism offerings must be integrated in the existing programs for the development of sanctuaries more than ever. The limited potential of the growth of domestic tourism underlines the necessity of international marketing. Common cross-border marketing should cover both the supra-regional interests and the local characteristics.
