Title:
Managing the Donegal coast in the twenty-first century
Author:
Collins, Anthony.
Abstract:
This thesis discusses the concept of coastal zone management in relation to County Donegal. An outline of the existing administrative and legislative structure for the coastal area of Donegal is given and the current approach to coastal erosion control is described. An alternative strategy of coastal defence, utilising land and water use management, is advanced. The general aims of coastal management programmes, adopted internationally, are outlined. The physical and human geography of the coast of Donegal is described, with attention being paid to changing employment patterns. The role of agriculture has decreased in importance as alternative industries such as tourism and aquaculture experience strong growth The impact of these industries on the Donegal coastal resource is examined and the absence of an integrated coastal development strategy is highlighted. Having discussed the theory of coastal management and described the general Donegal coastal situation, specific examples of coastal management issues in Donegal are given. Case studies highlighting current issues in the Donegal coastal zone are discussed and conclusions drawn as to how this beautiful but fragile resource, which is the main location of a growing tourism industry, can be sustainably managed in the twenty-first century.
