Making best use of existing policy tools in the delivery of ICZM, a CoastNET/Corepoint Conference

Location: Vannes (France)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2006-06-15    

Event Description:
Venue: University of Southern Brittany in the beautiful historic city of Vannes, Brittany, France.

Aims of the conference

One of the fundamental principles of ICZM is to bring together local institutions, agencies and users to agree common management objectives and appropriate management measures. However, to ensure consistency in management between different regions it is important to have common strategic frameworks at higher levels i.e. a national policy for ICZM. Are policy mechanisms already in place to support ICZM or are there issues which need addressing?

In this conference we to aim highlight local case studies from different regions e.g. Gulf of Morbihan and other EU countries. The speakers will consider the adequacy of management tools available at the local level in relation to delivering ICZM, the national response to the EU ICZM recommendation and the challenges to implementing a national ICZM strategy .
