Introduction

The coastal zone - that region of a country where the marine and terrestrial environments are in direct contact - is of great significance to an island state. Islands have coastlines which are disproportionately large compared to their dry land area and human activities tend to be concentrated there because so much of the economy is based on, or related to, man's use of the sea. The great dependency on the coastal zone is exemplified by the tourism industry of many Caribbean or Pacific islands, where the favourable combination of sun, sand and sea forms the mainstay of the economy.
