The principles and methods of scientific planning for practical care of the coastal zone are analyzed on the basis of a systems approach. As an object of planning, the coastal system, its ecological, economical, and social sub-systems, is examined. The role of planning in integrated coastal zone management is revealed and discussed. Case studies and exercises are proposed for training in practical planning in the coastal zone.
