Kenya's coastal and marine resources provide numerous benefits to coastal communities, including food, employment, protection from climate change, and more. However, inclusive planning. development, and management of resources is imperative to ensure that these benefits can be enjoyed by future generations of Kenyans.
Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) is a participatory process involving all stakeholders to plan, manage, conserve, and protect coastal and marine ecosystems with the aim of ensuring sustainable development. The objectives of ICZM are to promote sustainable use and equitable sharing of coastal resources, conserve ecological integrity, monitor natural risks, develop regional frameworks, involve stakeholders, and address the harmful effects of human activities.
