Abstract
    This chapter will consider the policy initiatives that address the integration of CZM policies and the conservation of coastal biodiversity, focusing particularly on:- The priorities inherent in them in terms of their desired outcomes;- The attention paid to policy formulation and implementation processesPolicies will be considered at an international, European and national level and the discussions will draw on existing reviews in keeping with the above foci rather than being a detailed historical review of the development of these policies. There is a considerable degree of overlap between policies concerning ICZM, Which is essentially the approach for implementing the concept of sustainable development for coastal areas, and those concerning biodiversity conservation, therefore these policies will be considered in conjunction.This analysis will also be focused on policy initiatives which specifically address ICZM though ist is recognised that there are many sectoral policies which clearly specify outcomes in terms of specific targets to be achieved at an international level, eg the MARPOL Convention, at a regional level, eg OSPARCOM and the North Sea Ministerial Conferences, the Barcelona and Helsinki Conventions under UNEP's Regional Seas Programme, and at a European level, eg Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, Bathing Waters Directive, Nitrates Directive, etc. It is also recognised that the conservation policy initiatives discussed are similarly sectorally focused. However, this analysis will pay particular attention to conservation policy initiatives with a particular focus on the Habitats Directiv, as such policy has major potential implications for other sectoral policies and is thus particularly relevant to discussions concerning ICZM in terms of processes and outcomes.
