Practical experience in the application of ICM in the East Asian region over the past 15 years has led to the development of a common framework for sustainable development of coastal areas. This common framework covers a system of governance as well as several issue-specific management systems critical to achieving the overall goals of sustainable development, including climate change adaptation. The ICM framework has become a very useful guide for national and local governments to promote sustainable development initiatives and programs. Key areas of competence addressed in the governance component of the framework include: Policy, strategies and action plans; Institutional arrangements; Legislation; Public awareness and information management; Sustainable financing; and Capacity development.
