Content

Global concepts and the theoretical basis of integrated land and sea management, e.g. Integrated Catchment Management and Integrated Coastal Zone Management are introduced. A case study of a global leader in integrated coastal zone and catchment management (Victoria) is used to illustrate the implementation of the concepts. Approaches taken to the integrated management of catchments and coasts and the roles of government, semi-government and local government authorities, and non-government organisation and the community in management are described and discussed. Overlaps of responsibility, possible conflicts of interest, and unclear boundaries of responsibility are identified. The State of Victoria is to be used as a case study of an attempt to integrate catchment and coastal management. The logic of the catchment as an area for both and management and planning purposes is discussed. Methods used to evaluate the social, biophysical and land-use characteristics and to develop community awareness and involvement in problems with catchment associated with catchments and coasts are described.
