A technical workshop on ‘Sustainable Coastal Development: The Role of Communication and Education’ took place in Maputo, Mozambique, 18-20 July 1998. It formed part of the Technical Workshops segment of PACSICOM, the Pan-African Conference on Sustainable Integrated Coastal Management, held in Maputo, 18-24 July 1998. This volume presents the above mentioned workshop’s input and output.

The aim of this document is to give easy access to the workshop’s results to those whose interest in coastal management is concentrated on the role of communication and education. An identical report of this workshop is included in the overall Conference proceedings, also being published by UNESCO under a similar cover.

PACSICOM was organized by the government of Mozambique in co-operation with the Government of Finland, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The Conference was composed of three parts: technical workshops to address specific themes; a workshop on cross-cutting issues and interlinkages; and a ministerial conference, which considered political implications and socio-economic factors.

This document has three parts: Part A gives a brief report of the workshop and related results; Part B contains the keynote papers; and Part C presents the other submitted papers. In this version of the workshop proceedings, all papers are presented in English.

The formal output from the PACSICOM technical workshops was communicated through a joint report, summary statements and specific recommendations to and endorsed by the ministerial conference. Thus, Section 3 and Section 4 of Part A of this report are key elements of the overall conference report. The portfolio of action proposals by the PACSICOM workshop on cross-cutting issues is included as Section 5 because it highlights an intersectoral viewpoint that is particularly relevant for communication and education.

The reader will observe that, in this document, varying terms are used when referring to integrated coastal management, e.g. SICOM, ISCM, ICZM, ICAM and ICM (see Annex 2 – Acronyms). Each author’s choice has been respected.
