Integrated Coastal Resources Management Project

Project Summary

The project seeks to improve the management and conditions of coastal and marine resources and biodiversity, and to reduce poverty in coastal communities that in a cyclical fashion contribute to further resource depletion and degradation. Through a participatory approach the project will support: (i) policy and institutional strengthening and development; (ii) reduce the extensive poverty prevalent among coastal communities through provision of alternative livelihood and enterprise development, social services and infrastructure, (iii) promote sustainable management and use of coastal resources and related ecosystems, and conserve coastal resources and globally significant biodiversity, (iv) control coastal environmental pollution and erosion, and (v) strengthen the capabilities of Government agencies, NGOs and local communities on coastal resource management and social development.
