Part of: Coastlines of Japan II


Remote islands are handicapped in their incomes and living conditions, because they are surrounded by oceans, the area is rather small, and also they are far from economic and cultural centers. In order to adapt to domestic and international changes, to decrease the gap between them and the mainland in living standards, to prevent degradation, to have balanced development and to utilize ocean resources, development plans of remote islands are very much needed. Remote islands have to be grouped into classes considering their surroundings and communities, and a plan for each class should be made.
