    Abstract

    A user-friendly, five-stage protocol is presented as an aid to the identification of the sustainable development potential of undeveloped coasts. It is a knowledge based, pre-Environmental Impact Assessment scoping scheme advising the early involvement of scientists in site identification. Following the identification of Process Defined Management Units (PDMUs), it is designed to aid the identification of zones of development potential, which are ranked according to sensitivity. The underlying rationale is the recognition of extensive, worldwide insensitive coastal zone development. Future developments must learn from past mistakes and this protocol is a suggested route towards more informed decision making.
