A Guide for Coastal Lagoon Managers

A guide for coastal lagoon managers has been published through the EU funded ARCH project, involving CSERGE Director Professor Kerry Turner from the University of East Anglia, and colleagues from other research institutes.

This straightforward guide is designed for coastal lagoon and estuary managers, such as planners and authorities at a national, regional and local level, as well as the private sector.

The guide illustrates
- why management of lagoons and estuaries is important
- how to identify and evaluate pressures on the lagoon
- what should be considered when starting up the management process
- what should be included in that process.

It emphasizes the importance of stakeholder participation in the management process which was studied in the EU-research project ARCH.

You can read more and download the guide from the ARCH website.
