In March 1992 the ecology sate agency was created in Baja California, it is in charge of selected aspects relating to protection of the environment and planning of the state's development. The most important state law in this regard is the ecology equilibrium and environment protection act, proclaimed in February of 1992. This paper presents how the state government expects to plan for the development of the state's coastal zone.
