MARINE AND COASTAL ACT 2018 (NO. 26 OF 2018) - SECT 8

Integrated coastal zone management

    (1)     It is a guiding principle for the management of the marine and coastal environment that planning and management should be co-ordinated and integrated, as appropriate, across—

        (a)     the marine and coastal environment and associated catchments; and

        (b)     the water cycle, including as it relates to estuaries, oceans, bays and coastal waters, groundwater and waterways, where this affects the marine and coastal environment and water quality; and

        (c)     industry sectors and users of the marine and coastal environment; and

        (d)     land tenure where this affects the marine and coastal environment.

    (2)     Planning and management should also take into account long-term and short-term environmental, social and economic considerations.
