Zoning of ICZM units: description and analysis of physical environment

The establishing and demarcation of both the area and functions of ICAM units will allow the creation and application of good management policy. Good management, taking an integrated view of the function of the territory, should have positive repercussions for both inhabitants and tourists and occasional visitors to the Balearic coastline. The division of the territory in terms of ICAM is based in the demarcation of a series of homogenous zones and is carried out starting from a prior analysis of the factors, both in natural an socio-economic terms, that depend directly on the coastline, as well as socio-economic activities derived from them.
