The main objective of estuarine management is to devise a framework within which man may coexist with nature. This chapter divides estuarine management into three broad areas: policies and philosophies, planning and designations, and practice. Policy reflects the underlying approaches and frameworks in the way we manage estuaries, which is related to the political and administrative framework. Planning is used for the process of resource allocation, be it by ecological or economic yardsticks. Practice covers the means by which we can derive and implement decisions. All of these aspects are interrelated and each follows from each other.

Keywords:   policy, planning, practice, estuarine species and habitats, management of estuaries
