Coastal Zone Management along the Gulf of Aden

Project Objective: The project is designed to contribute to the conservation of globally significant coastal and marine biodiversity in threatened pilot sizeable sections of the coastal zone along the Gulf of Aden by promoting an effective and replicable integrated coastal zone management process including the establishment of coastal and marine protected areas based on a strong participation of all the coastal users. In doing so, the project will complement on going initiatives such as the regional SAP project and the Socotra Archipelago conservation project and is expected to develop an operational enabling framework for coastal and marine biodiversity conservation through CZM in Yemen which will pave the way for the development of a broader program of this kind in the country.
