Sample text

This zone includes the coasts of Tortuguilla Island, Fuerte Island and the San Bernardo Islands Archipelago. The Gulf of Morrosquillo has an approximate area of 1000 km2 and depths between 15 and 55 m. An extensive coastal plain limits it on the north and south with two coral terraces. The evolution and dynamics of the south-west sector, located around the Sinú River mouth, depend on the fluvial and marine processes, and are especially affected by the rate of waves and tides. The case study area covers the south part of the Gulf of Morrosquillo from the Tolú’s municipal head-board to the Rada Point, see Fig.

While studying the specific strategies and cost analysis for the Gulf of Morrosquillo, we found that significant measures should be taken. The main response strategies identified are: ● ● ● ● ● ● the formulation of an ICZM proposal in which more effective governance is achieved, especially integrated assessment with several administrative levels and sectors; more specific implementation of a spatial planning and an ICZM proposal to combine ecological and industrial development; the establishment of a new regulatory measure for design and construction of factories, houses, infrastructure, roads, etc.

We expect that at the municipal level Territorial Land-use Plans will incorporate the subject of disaster prevention as a general rule. SLR and ‘climate variability’ in general have not been included in any of the local spatial plans because of the lack of awareness, experience and knowledge regarding the subject in the rural areas. Furthermore, references to and data collection of particular events such as hurricanes, flooding, tsunamis or the El Niño phenomenon are limited. This exercise forms the first step to improve that situation.
