Vitkienė, E.. A Special Planning Process for the Development of ICZM. In: Schernewski, G., Glaeser, B., Scheibe, R., Sekścińska, A., Thamm, R. (eds.). Coastal Development: The Oder estuary and beyond. Coastline Reports (8), pp. 289-296. EUCC - The Coastal Union, Leiden, 2007.


Today we are confronted with many important issues in regional and integrated coastal zone management. Globalisation, global competition, diverse national and international business forms, and different – often conflicting – interests among various business groups have caused a number of issues to be raised concerning a harmonized regional management strategy for the future. Empirical evidence points to some ideas, concepts and visions for regional development that would require adjusting methods and viewpoints for studying particular regions. Strategies must be developed that are more in accordance with the principles of sustainable development and supranational governance, particularly in terms of regional management and integrated coastal  zone management (ICZM). After preparing special plans to develop a regional management scheme, and after performing complex analysis of different spheres of activities, we conclude that we can provide a vision for a regional strategy, define a general mission, and resolve most regional problems. In doing so, we will create better conditions and new perspectives for integrated coastal zone management.
