Draft Guidelines for Drafters and Negotiators of the Protocol on Integrated Coastal Zone Management to the Nairobi Convention
United Nations Environment Programme

Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) has grown conceptually and operationally mainly in the last four decades since its inception in the United States of America in the early 1970s. The concept and practice of ICZM is not yet well understood, although it has gained widespread acceptance as a management system and vehicle for rational and sustainable utilization of coastal zone resources and uses.
ICZM may be described generally as the management of human activities for sustainable use of coastal resources through proper policy management and technological interventions. It is deemed to be a useful management system that provides the essential approaches, methodologies, and a management framework for the attainment of sustainable development.

The Montevideo Programme for the Development and Periodic Review of Environmental Law (Montevideo Programme) refers to a series of ten-year programmes that constitute a broad strategy for the international law community and UN Environment in formulating activities in the field of environmental law. The current Montevideo programme and fourth such programme (Montevideo Programme IV) runs from 2010 to 2020. At its second universal session in 2016 the United Nations Environment Assembly adopted Resolution 2/19 which requests UN Environment, in close collaboration with the national focal points, to prepare an assessment of Montevideo IV and proposals for the work of UN Environment in the area of environmental law for a specific period beginning in 2020, for consideration by the UNEA in 2019. The findings and recommendations of UN Environment’s latest flagship Global Environment Outlook (GEO-6) assessment, as well as relevant UN Environmental Assembly resolutions, will serve as a basis to discuss priorities from the region. The consultations in Amman are the third of a series of regional consultations which will take place in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, West Asia and Asia Pacific between the months of June and July 2018.
