Review of the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) Strategy in Jersey

Jersey’s ICZM strategy aims to “bring together all parties that develop, manage or use the coast to ensure that the coast is sustainable managed in an integrated way” and deliver a “single coherent set of policies to manage Jersey’s marine and coastal environment for the first time”. We reviewed the strategy (produced in 2008) in order to assess progress, highlight changes in the policy, legislative and physical context, compare against other countries’ ICZM strategies, and analyse gaps. We then identified, prioritised and costed out future policies and actions, and made recommendations for future governance, reporting and monitoring.
