Recognizing the variation in conditions among participating countries, while also realizing common coastal management concerns across the region, a series of ICM demonstration projects and parallel learning sites have been established in order to encourage local governments to adopt the comprehensive integrated management framework and process. ICM replication and scaling up, both functionally and geographically, will continue as local capacity develops. PEMSEA Partners are targeting to cover 20 percent of the regional coastline through replication of ICM practices by 2015.
