Estonia: The best practices of coastal zone protection and conservation in spatial planning (2011)

Description

This report was compiled within the Balltic Green Belt project. The Baltic Green Belt project wants to conserve, use and develop the common natural and cultural heritage of the coastal border areas formerly dividing east and west by establishing a platform for transnational cooperation between stakeholders working in nature conservation and sustainable development of the southern and eastern Baltic Sea coast. The report offers: - a selection of examples on integrated coastal management programmes, which are offered as the best practice - an overview of the protection and conservation practices in spatial planning in Estonia and coastal zone plans by counties - a summary of spatial planning opportunities for coastal protection and conservation based on the analysis of the plans - the main opportunities, methods, solutions and strategies/principles, which could be considered the best practice in the present-day spatial planning in Estonia - recommendations on how to improve coastal management based on best practice and how to develop and improve the application of best practices in spatial planning in Estonia.
