IPE Global | News | December 21, 2015 IST
IPE Global has won a project for consultancy support to facilitate the preparation of Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan and Shoreline Management Plan for Odisha under Integrated Coastal Zone Management Project (ICZMP). This project will be the first full-fledged ICZMP and shoreline management plan for any Indian state. As consultants, we have to formulate an Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan that would focus on providing a clear framework for better coordination of the developmental activities along the coastal stretch. The plan will include strategic actions and sustainable policies for effective management of the coastal zone to enhance socio-economic improvement of its population while keeping its natural resources and the environment healthy. The proposals will be capable of sustaining future generation, including the impact from climate changes. As part of the assignment, the team will also analyse various issues related to shoreline changes including erosion, flooding and sea water inundation caused by natural forces like cyclones and anthropogenic activities and developing a shoreline Management sub-plan (SMP) for the entire coastline of Odisha to regulate development in the shoreline area.
