Sustainable Coastal Development : The Role of Communication and Education

A technical wo rkshop on ‘ S u s t a i n able Coastal D eve l o p m e n t : The Role of Commu n i c ation and E d u c at i o n ’ took place in Map u t o , M o z a m b i q u e, 18-20 Ju ly 1998. It fo rmed part of the Te ch n i c a l Wo rkshops segment of PAC S I C O M , the Pa n - A f rican Confe rence on Sustainable Integrat e d Coastal Manage m e n t , held in Map u t o , 1 8 - 2 4 Ju ly 1998. This volume presents the above - mentioned wo rk s h o p ’s input and output.

The aim of this document is to give easy access to the workshop’s results to those whose interest in coastal management is concentrated on the role of communication and education. An identical report of this workshop is included in the overall Conference proceedings, also being published by NESCO under a similar cover. PACSICOM was organized by the government of Mozambique in co-operation with the Government of Finland, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The Conference was composed of three parts: technical workshops to address specific themes; a workshop on cross-cutting issues and interlinkages; and a ministerial conference, which nsidered political implications and socio-economic factors. This document has three part s : Pa rt A gives a b rief rep o rt of the wo rkshop and re l ated re s u l t s ; p a rt B contains the keynote pap e rs; and Pa rt C p resents the other submitted pap e rs.

In this ve rsion of the wo rkshop pro c e e d i n g s , all pap e rs are p resented in English. The formal output from the PACSICOM t e chnical wo rkshops was commu n i c at e d through a joint report, summary statements and specific recommendations to and endorsed by the ministerial conference. Thus, Sections 3 and 4 of Part A of this report are key elements of the ove rall confe rence rep o rt. The port folio of action proposals by the PACSICOM workshop on cross-cutting issues is included as Section 5 because it highlights an intersectoral viewpoint that is particularly relevant for communication and education. The reader will observe that, in this document, varying terms are used when referring to integrated coastal management, e.g. SICOM, ICSM, ICZM, ICAM and ICM (see Annex 2 – A c ro nyms). Each author’s choice has been respected.
