KZN Coastal Management Plan
DRAFT PROVINCIAL COASTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN
Phelamanga is supporting the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) to provide public meetings and opportunity for I&APs to access and engage with the proposed Draft Provincial Coastal Management Programme (PCMP) for KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).
Our coastal environments are a rich and diverse asset, providing valuable economic, social and ecological opportunities. As such they need to be carefully managed in order to ensure long-term sustainability. South Africa, following global trends, developed and enacted the Integrated Coastal Management Act (24 of 2008) and its subsequent Amendment Act (36 of 2014), hereafter referred to as the ICM Act. The ICM Act contains a variety of tools to ensure that the coastal zone is managed co-operatively, of which the development of a Coastal Management Programme (CMP) is key.
WHAT IS A PCMP?
The PCMP is a provincial policy directive for the management of the coast through an integrated, coordinated, uniform approach, and includes strategies and plans for the effective implementation of the ICM Act. The KZN PCMP currently in Draft Format will provide direction for coastal management in KZN over a five year period and sets out goals and objectives for the achievement of ICM in the Province.
Public meetings were held in Richards Bay, Ballito, Durban and Margate.
