Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) was at the heart of RESCCUE's implementation strategy. This has resulted (i) at the regional level, in the production of documents and the exchange of experiences to guide field activities, and (ii) on pilot sites, in the development and implementation of ICM plans as well as diversified activities in planning, management of sectoral interventions and strengthening of governance.
In practice, the necessary adaptation to local contexts and needs has meant that ICM plans were not developed systematically. When they were, they took a variety of forms.
RESCCUE partners have refrained from taking the “ICM plan” tool for an objective in itself. They have navigated, overall successfully, between expectations of process quality and the imperative of operational efficiency.
