The proposed new operation will build on the 2010 ICZM project’s challenges and lessons learned by focusing on (1) further streamlining the institutional mandates, resource flows, and functionalities among government tiers; (2) balancing financial viability and long-term resource sustainability to enable private finance; and (3) linking science to management and decison making, and strengtheing the National Center for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM) in order to make it stronger, financially sustainable, and link it to other global centers–in line with India’s aspiration to become a lighthouse of knowledge."
