ICZM Task Force, Sabah

In October 1988 the ICZM Project in Sabah entered its Phase 2 focussing on producing the ICZM Strategic Development Plan for the state building upon the information system established in earlier phases, on the networks among coastal development stakeholders from the public and private sectors and applying the tools introduced, developed and trained in. All earlier Task Forces, except the district level Sandakan Task Force were amalgamated into the composite Sabah ICZM Task Force, which in Phase 2 operated through a series of State Work Shops exposing the progressive achievements to a broader audience. The development of strategic recommendations were undertaken in four Work Groups, covering institutional, environmental, spatial and public participation and awareness dimensions.

Two major work shops and a Strategic ICZM Plan presentation Conference were held in Phase 2 in October 1998, December 1998 and June 1999 respectively:
