Abstract
    This paper will consider both the nearshore and the onshore sector of the coastal zone but stops short of the immediate hinterland. As the 21st century dawns, pressures on the littoral fringe intensify at an accelerating pace. Demands for its use are complex and numerous, with conflict steadily increasing. They encompass expanding human occupance, industry's search for water, implantation of transformation-facilities, processing, manufacture- and manutention plants, alternative energy installations, road-, rail- and air transportation centres, harbour space, terminals, maintenance and expansion of existing fisheries facilities, accomodation of various pipe- and slurry lines, siting of artificial islands of divergent purposes, preservation of touristic attractiveness, development of recreational installations, and - in some sites -exploitation of beaches and inner-shelf mineral deposits. Besides harmonising this vast array of exigencies, and rationally allocating space, managing must cope with environmental impact of multiple-use and the threatening aspects of sea-level rise posing the recurrent problems of coastal defense, beach restoration, and shoreline retreat.
