ICZM-Oder: Integrated Coastal Zone Management in the Oder Estuary Region

Type of Entry: Project
Website: http://www.ikzm-oder.de/
Duration: 01/05/2004 - 30/04/2010

The project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in 3 phases. With the close of the first project phase from 2004 to 2007 the basis for a regional ICZM implementation has been provided in particular in the German part of the region. Now, this basis has to be developed further, focused thematically and having a cross-border ICZM in mind, into concrete and transferable recommendations for the regional, national and international ICZM levels. Additional and significant new research is needed because of multiple changes in ecological, social, planning and legal frameworks, changes in the border situation and other complex and large-scale changes with immediate impacts on the coastal zone. Project results show that the Oder River with its drainage basin has a central steering function on the coastal zone. A regional ICZM must not neglect effects like this. Moreover, it was shown, that the innovative interlinking of river-coast-sea simulation models combined with transdisciplinary work allow scientificly highly relevant analysis and scenarios of past, present and future states of this coastal region.

The follow-up project considers this research state. Aiming at a stronger focus, the planned tasks in the follow-up project can be thematically summarised as followed:
1. Regional cross-border ICZM (legal, institutional and control theoretical frameworks as well as strategic concepts and recommendations for governance and implementation) and
2. River-coast-sea: A system in transition: (thematic focus on water quality)
are complemented by:
3. ICZM tools and information
