    The main characteristics of the coastal zone are reviewed, especially in relation to the problems it is subject to from the point of view of both natural and human-induced processes. Strategies for adaptation and management are discussed. The different types of activities in coastal areas and the conflicts between them are commented upon; possible lines of action to solve the conflict between development and maintenance of environmental quality are proposed. Planning, in order to adapt human actions to natural processes is considered essential, as well as stricter legislation and control.
