MetadataShow full item record
The project plan proposes to introduce the idea of community-based coastal resource management at a defined project site and to implement practical management methods, places emphasis on promoting the sustainable use of coastal resources by territorializing a demarcated area preserved for small-scale fisheries. The project includes management of the demarcated zone where particular types of fishing operations are prohibited. This is a very effective approach toward the expansion of comprehensive community development programs. DOF and SEAFDEC/TD have agreed to minor changes in the framework of the project s implementation and have added some new activities. This is the project proposal for the further development of coastal resource management project, although the basic concept and methodologies adopted are the same as the DOF s initial proposal. This project sets up three overall objectives, 1) The establishment of sustainable coastal resource management at local level, 2) The rehabilitation of coastal resources, 3) The alleviation of poverty in coastal fishing communities. Four results from the implementation of this project are expected, 1) Locally Based Coastal Resource Management (LBCRM) in Pathew District, Chumporn Province, works, 2) People s production and living conditions improvement, 3) Local people and organizations enhance their capability in community development, 4) Practices are converted into DOF s policy on coastal resource management. The project will consist of six major activities, 1) Base Line Survey, 2) Encourage and Extend Locally Based Coastal Resource Management, 3) Encourage Local Business, 4) Enhance Human Resource Capability and Participation, 5) Develop Extension Methodologies and Strengthening Extension System for Sustainable Use of Coastal Resources, and 6) Rehabilitate and Enhance Coastal Resources.
