Abstract

The paper examines factors influencing the sustainability of integrated coastal management (ICM) projects in the Philippines and Indonesia. Measures of project sustainability are developed and primary data collected at the village level are analyzed to determine the effects of project activities and individual characteristics on ICM sustainability. The findings indicate that perceptions of benefits as well as initial benefits influence early involvement and participation in the ICM projects evaluated in the Philippines and Indonesia. In turn, this involvement enhances the chances that ultimate benefits will be those desired by the target population. Finally, achievement of these benefits stimulates continuing involvement in the activities, sustaining the ICM process. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
