The course consists of lectures, demonstrations and workshops. The guiding line through the whole course is the idea that a coastal zone should be regarded as an integrated system. This will be illustrated by using several case studies in several countries.
One of these cases (the fictive estuary of 'Pesisir Tropicana') will be worked out in a work-shop. In the case studies, the Coastal Zone is regarded as a coastal water/land body in the sense that there are demands for various products and services that the Bay and it environs can supply - that is, it is a multiple-use resource. The regional economy of the area used in the exercise is similar to those in many coastal areas of the world, particularly in developing countries.
There is a large urban complex, port facilities and industrial base, with a well developed service sector. Fishing is carried out in the coastal waters. In the hinter-land, various types of primary production take place, including agriculture and mining. Wage levels, existing pollution con-trol and production technologies are typical of many developing countries. Special attention will be given to the Worldbank guidelines for Coastal Zone Management plans.
It is possible to take part in the examination of all short courses with ECTS credit points.
