Zusammenfassung:  Since 1995, concern about the state of Europe's coastline has led to a number of EU initiatives, striving to improve conditions through the concept of integrated coastal zone management (ICZM). ICZM attempts to balance the needs of development with protection of the very resources that sustain livelihood along the coasts. It also takes into account the public's concern about the deteriorating environmental, socio-economic and cultural state of the coastline, on a regional scale as well as all over Europe. In the EU context the coastal zone is interpreted as the resulting environment from the coexistence of two margins, namely the terrestrial edge of the continent and coastal water as the littoral section of shelf seas. Together they constitute an entity which needs a specific methodological approach for dedicated planning and management. ICZM is thus an approach to sustainable development following defined management principles designed for regions in the coastal areas of Europe. In this article, we explain the concept of ICZM, set it in context with the Baltic Green Belt, and point out to implications of climate change for ICZM in the Baltic Green Belt area. In the end, we give an outline of ICZM in the Baltic Green Belt.
