  • Part II Coastal Environment Issues Pollution  Discharging solid waste and liquid waste into the river or beach directly. • Agricultural activities: Using chemical fertilizer and insecticide  Industrial activities: disposing the waste, particularly liquid waste into the sea directly Degradation of Natural Resources  Fisheries: Using illegal fishing instrument such as push nets, drag nets, dynamite, or fish poison 5
  • Part II Coastal Environment Issues Degradation of Natural Resources Mangroves: There are approximately 63,039 ha (1997) and it was further reduced to 56,241 ha (2002 by JICA and MOE) The depletion of mangrove forest caused by human activities: Cutting for charcoal and wood production, clearing the mangrove forest for agriculture purpose. 6
  • Part II Coastal Environment Issues Coral and Seagrasses• Destructive fishing practices including motorized push nets, shallow water trawling and weighted bottom nets. Over dredging sand:The removal of sand is remarkable in O Tres 7
  • Part II Coastal Environment Issues Port development tourism Problems  the depletion of natural resources such as mangrove forest, fish, coral, seagrasses and sand can cause some problems: fish shortage, pollution, beach erosion and other problems. 8
  • Part III Coastal Management and ChallengesCoastal management ◦ Enforcement of existing law  To manage and conserve the coastal resources in a sustainable manner. ◦ Environmental legal framework ◦ Environmental issues framework ◦ Coastal Zone Management 9
  • Part III Coastal Management and Challenges Challenges ◦ Lack of enforcing environmental laws ◦ Lack of public awareness and participation ◦ Corruption ◦ Poverty 10
  • Part VI Conclusion All in all, pollution, degradation of natural resources and other environmental issues along the coastal area are still the important issues to be concern. Suggestion: ◦ government and line ministries as well as other institutions should pay more attention to coastal area issues and take action immediately if necessary. ◦ Local authorities in close collaboration with communities should carry out monitoring and enforcing the existing law effectively. 11
