Leadership (incl some notes on politics) [edit | edit source]

Good leadership is essential for good results. Ultimately, it is the leaders in your organization - formal and informal - who lead changes in the right direction. Cashing in on new opportunities. Implementing innovations and inspiring their colleagues. Good leaders link personal ambitions to the assignment (in this case sustainable coastal development) that your organization stands for. Leading yourself, your team and the joint assignment6.

Integration and Mandate [edit | edit source]

To really make ICZM work on the long term organization structures that make this possible have to be put in place. All organizations that have authority on a subject within the coastal zone should be connected to each other to make integrated decisions. This can, for example, be done in a Steering Committee that meets every few months. In the steering committee, all different levels and sectors have to be represented. Among others, it can include the Kabupaten level, the province level, government officials from the industry, forestry and water departments.

Alliance for Water Stewardship [edit | edit source]

The International Water Stewardship Standard (AWS Standard) might help to implement Integrated Coastal Zone Management. It is a globally applicable framework for major water users (including companies in the coastal zone) to understand their water use and impacts, and to work collaboratively and transparently for sustainable water management within a catchment context. The Standard is intended to drive social, environmental and economic benefits at the scale of a catchment.

It achieves this by engaging water-using sites in understanding and addressing shared catchment water challenges as well as site water risks and opportunities. It asks water-using sites to address these challenges in a way that progressively moves them to best practice in terms of five outcomes: good water governance, sustainable water balance, good water quality status, important water-related areas, safe water sanitation and hygiene for all.1
