Is to create the long term health and cooperation necessary for long term survivability of sensitive coastal and marine areas around the world.
To balance human social, economic and recreational needs with the coastal planning while creating long term protection of threatened, endangered species and the habitats that they rely upon.
Although the plants and animals that inhabit the coastline have adapted to a dynamic environment, they are nonetheless vulnerable to human disturbance, particularly disturbances impacting the quality and/or quantity of available habitat. Thus, as coastal populations and shoreline development continue to expand, there will be an increasing need to balance human requirements with natural resource protection. It is against this backdrop that the WFCRC has embarked on the development of the Coastal Protection Master Plan (CPMP).
