    Abstract

    The context underlying the concept of Process-Defined Management Units (PDMUs) as an aid to sustainable coastal decision-making is reviewed Using examples, it is suggested that the flexible PDMU approach can help to pragmatically integrate coastal management and has considerable merits compared with other types of coastal management units, such as sediment cells and Homogeneous Environmental Management Units (HEMUs)
