Sri Lanka Coastal Zone Management Project

The objective of the Sri Lankan Coastal Zone Management Project (CZMP, ended June 1999) was to assist in the preparation of a Coastal Zone Management Plan for Sri Lanka consistent with the National Coast Conservation Department (CCD) mandate, as well as to develop techniques for effectively implementing the CZMP.  Project goals were:

1) To enhance local planning expertise in managing the coastal zone for sustainable use;

2) To increase the awareness among the Sri Lankan population of the value of coastal resources and the need to manage them;

3) To assist the CCD as it expanded the scope and detail of its management effort.
