In the management of the coastal zone a broad overall perspective on management is to be taken to avoid overlooking stakeholders interests as for the coastal environment to be properly managed all stakeholders are to be taken into consideration for a thorough and effective job to be done. A long term perspective is an important view to have on the implementation of management plans because as we have seen, nothing stays the same forever and environments and activities are constantly changing, this long term plan is complimented by a flexible and adaptive management method which may cater for any eventualities.
As well as working in a flexible way, we see that the natural environment is one which cannot be controlled and therefore it is important as this environment is the very thing we are trying to preserve and so we should work with natural processes in order not to disrupt the very thing which brings us life. An important aspect to obtaining this management method is having the support of all relevant administrative bodies involved in the regulation and law making processes in the environment which is being dealt with.
As far as career options are concerned, at the beginning of this course i had the idea of opening an environmental consultancy and still my idea has not changed, given a chance to enter into the environmental industry i hope to attain the relevant experience in a multitude of fields in a number of disciplines relating to the environmental sector which may stand me in good stead to open something to call my own or a partnership.
A few jobs which may interest me are in the links that follow.
Preferably i would like to enter into the realms of environmental consultancy although these other positions are of interest to me.
Postgratuate opportunities which i would be interested in are work and work only.
