Abstract: This paper describes the state of the protection, conservation and management of the Wadden Sea by the three countries, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands in the framework of their joint cooperation to protect the Wadden Sea as a coherent nature area. It will encompass an analysis of the international cooperation on the protection of the Wadden Sea based upon the "wise use" principle as an example of international cooperation in the field of environmental and nature protection. It will further include an overall analysis and comparison of the coastal planning system with respect to the protection of the Wadden sea., the application of nature protection instruments and the management of the area.
