    The consequences of discharging untreated sewage into the coastal environment includes environmental degradation associated with eutrophication and potential or actual impacts on public health due to sewage mediated pathogens. Instead, it directs that federal dollars not be spent for development purposes on designated coastal barriers. This requires maximum efficiency in the use of the resources and in the application of capital investments and recurrent inputs. Strengthening communities Sustainable Coastal Tourism can add to the vitality of communities in many ways.

    Environmental Management and Planning benefits Sound and efficient environmental management of tourism facilities and especially hotels e. Other damaging activities include the following: 1 siltation and sedimentation created by dredging, filling, and related construction activities and increased soil erosion; 2 pollutants, including spilled oil, industrial wastewater, and domestic sewage; 3 discharge of large volumes of fresh water as may result from diversions and storm-water outfalls; 4 destructive fishing practices, including dynamite; 5 collection of young fishes for sale in the aquarium trade; and 6 tourist visits to reefs which result in breakage from boat anchors and from hand and foot damage.

More broadly, the involvement of local communities in sustainable tourism development and operation seems to be an important condition for the sustainable use and conservation of the biodiversity. Fresh Water Water running off impervious surfaces Land clearing Draining wetlands Channelization of streams Changes salinity patterns in estuarine habitats, causing slowed growth or death of juvenile organisms, or poor reproduction.

This report has never been submitted to the Congress, and no Pacific coast barrier units have been included in the System. As a part of this program, the Coastal Resources Commission CRC designated "Areas of Environmental Concern" within the 20 coastal counties and set rules for managing development within these areas.

Which lessons are to be learnt? What is coastal zone management? Figure 3. Ecologically, mangrove communities have a variety of recognized roles in the areas where they occur. Changes in the landscape coming from the construction of infrastructure, buildings and facilities.

Runoff can be toxic to marine organisms - causing death, disease and reproductive problems. One of the largest fringing-reef formations lies along the Saudi Arabian, 1 mile Red Sea coast which is noted for an absence of freshwater and sediment runoff Clark, ; Ormond, et al.

Polluted effluents are often the most common source of adverse effects on coastal and marine ecosystems Table 3. Beaches are also the source of construction sand in many island countries which can lead to catastrophic loss of beach; e.

John H. Overdevelopment for tourism has the same problems as other coastal developments, but often has a greater impact as the tourist developments are located at or near fragile marine ecosystems. Problems Discharge of sewage in marinas and nearshore coastal areas.

Coastal Zone Management

You may be wondering how the latter relates to my assigned topic, coastal pollution and waste management. According to GESAMP (), "marine pollution means the introduction by man, directly or indirectly, of substances or energy into the marine environment (including estuaries) resulting in such deleterious effects as harm to living resources.

Coastal Zone Management Handbook comprises the first complete manual on coastal resource planning and management technology. Written by an international consultant, this handbook reflects a global perspective on the natural resources, sensitivities, economics, development, productivity, and 5/5(2).
