Chapter Summary

The preamble of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) espoused integration as one of the most important principles of ocean management, namely that "the problems of ocean space are closely interrelated and need to be considered as a whole. Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) promises to operationalize the integration vision of UNCLOS while facilitating the domestic implementation of many parts of that instrument. This chapter addresses the relationship between marine transportation and ICM, and how sectoral and multisectoral management and regulatory approaches might relate to each other. Particularly sensitive sea areas (PSSAs) concern coastal and marine ecosystems that are considered particularly sensitive to the impact of international navigation activities, such as the act of navigation itself, anchoring, and the potential for casualty. International Maritime Organization (IMO) is considered to be an efficient international organization with a fairly successful record of regulation.
