Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


The main coastal resource management issues in Somalia are centered in the terrestrial component of the coastal zone. There are no significant problems of marine pollution or the overexploitation of marine living resources. The development problems of primary significance are: natural hazards associated with floods and destabilization of sand dunes, land based industrial and municipal pollution and low standards of resource management and planning.
