IMA > Development of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) plan and marine spatial plan

Development of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) plan and marine spatial plan

Development of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) plan and marine spatial plan for the North West Peninsula of Trinidad

A draft Integrated Coastal Zone Management Policy Framework was developed in 2014 by a Multi-sectoral Steering Committee appointed by Cabinet in 2012.  This initiative was led by the IMA. The implementation of the ICZM policy framework will require regional plans to be developed collaboratively with key stakeholders.   The Northwest Peninsula of Trinidad, extending from Scotland Bay to the mouth of the Diego Martin River, was selected as the pilot area for the development of an ICZM and Marine Spatial Plan (MSP) since this coastal area has a myriad of coastal uses and users, both onshore and offshore, as well as many coastal issues that need to be addressed.  Once this pilot is completed, the intention is to develop a MSP for the entire Gulf of Paria.
