Thor, B., Gad Burgman, N.. Integrated Coastal Zone Management in Forests by the Baltic Sea. In: Schernewski, G., Löser, N. (eds.). BaltCoast 2004 - Managing the Baltic Sea. Coastline Reports (2), pp. 83-89. 2004.


In several of the Baltic Sea Region countries, woodlands are essential parts of the coastal zone environment. The land coastal zone based high diversity values are to a large extent situated in the woodlands. Forestry operations are common in the coastal woodlands. For tourism the coastal woodlands are an essential part of the positive experience. The archipelago along the Swedish and the Finnish coasts are unique environments. Incomes from forestry and tourism are essential parts of the economy, which contributes to the possibilities for living in the coastal zone. Large parts of the Scandinavian coastal zones are dealing problems related to a decreasing population and outmoded infrastructure. Nine Swedish partners in SE Sweden are demonstrating how ICZM can be applied on the coastal woodlands, developing better methods for surveys, extension and information. How should the different interests be balanced? How do you identify and protect the high biodiversity values? What do threatened species need? How should coastal zone and river basin forestry operations be carried out to minimise the negative impact on the biodiversity and the water quality of the Baltic Sea? In ICZM of coastal forests how do you contribute to the creation of environmentally conscious attitudes? An international Expert group is going to contribute to the project with experiences form other countries, for the development of recommendations for management of the coastal woodlands.
