WELCOME TO THE COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT UNIT
FROM THE DIRECTOR'S DESK
The most intriguing location of any small island is its coastal zone. This transitional strip of land contains some of the most productive and valuable habitats of the biosphere. It has multiple resources, resource users, varying levels of development and in essence is fundamental to the very existence of a small island. Barbados is no exception in this regard, especially with its highly varied coastline of unique geological formation.
Barbados considers the implementation of integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) as the best way forward for the maintained effective management of the coastline and for the last twenty-five (25) years, the government of Barbados has systematically and incrementally developed its capacity to implement ICZM.
We hope that you will join us in pursuit of a deeper understanding of the Barbados coastal zone. Please visit our website in the future to learn about our latest activities. We at the CZMU endeavour to keep you informed and will continue to work to ensure that the Barbados' coast is indeed 'a coast to be proud of'.
