The following web-pages are part of a bilateral co-operation project
between Indonesia and Germany in the field of Marine Sciences.
Part I of the Integrated Coastal Zone Management ICZM concept
is the presentation of the general situation in the coastal zone of Padang,
provincial capital of West-Sumatra. By selecting different coastal "users"
by mouse-click, you are welcome to explore the facts and figures of our
coastal resources. The sometimes contradicting requirements given through
different "coastal users" show that there is no managing concept yet.
Part II of this concept, which is planned for 1999, will present
you an interface, which allows to change various fictive set-ups, thus
enabling different scenarios in order to find out which management strategy
will serve how many users and above all, will lead to an economical and
ecological optimal and sustainable yield of coastal resources. In this
context it is referred to an interesting web-site of our colleagues in
The Netherlands (http://www.minvenw.nl/rws/projects/netcoast/workshop/cosmo.htm).
Apart from the coastal zone and the coastal users presented here, you
will find some information regarding the Bung Hatta University (BHU),
one of our partners in Indonesia, a publication list and theses list
of related topics, a list of scientific international
guests since 1992 and some aerial photos.
Finally we are pleased to acknowledge the help and support of:
