Coastal Zone Management

The coastal zone is one of Australia's greatest assets. The fundamental goal of Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) is to maintain, restore or improve the quality of coastal zone ecosystems and the societies they support. National cooperation is required to achieve ecologically sustainable development through ICZM.

The Director of National Parks assists the Minister and the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts in the conservation and appreciation of Australia's biological diversity and associated cultural heritage, through leadership and cooperation in the management of Commonwealth parks and reserves. These include areas located on Australian island territories and in Commonwealth waters.
