Integrated Coastal Zone Management: The Approach for Development and Growth
The project aimed to achieve sustainable integrated coastal zone development in Jordan by supporting change processes for the major organizations that work on planning and administration. Through the project, the Association sought to unify the efforts of all parties and involve them in achieving sustainable development that meets the needs, rights and duties of all stakeholders.
The Integrated Management Project is a national requirement as it is linked to the national obligations of the Jordanian Government and the Complementary Phase as well. It is in line with the recommendations contained in the Third Communication Report to the United Nations Climate Change Program, which stressed the need to implement the ICZM guidelines, and the work plan of the Convention on Biological Diversity prepared by the Ministry of Environment and delivered to the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity. Accordingly, the outputs of the second phase are in line with national priorities and will certainly support the Jordanian government in meeting local and international requirements. The project will be implemented within a period of 12 months.
The project was implemented through the preparation of a plan of action for coastal management with the participation of various sectors in Aqaba which represent the stakeholders. The aim of this project was to create a system for coastal management and to compensate for the current shortage in the Aqaba Authority Law, as well as strengthening institutional and individual capacities in such areas as strategic planning, preparation of work plans and communication skills.
