by Ludwig Scharmann, Univ Hannover, Hannover, Germany,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '93


In so far, the preconditions for the implementation of decentralized development tools both in coastal management and in ocean industries may be quite ideal in East Germany: there is the urgent need to overcome all central based planning from the past, there is a proved legal framework imported from the West and we have got there a -by German standards-rather sea-minded public. (This paper discusses these issues.)
