Résumé
This research project is focused on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) in the local contexts of the arid cities Eilat (Israel) and Aqaba (Jordan). The main purpose is to show how locality affects the ICZM framework and its success. Therefore, main study questions analyze the local stakeholders, institutions and their histories, the forces determining emergence of coastal management approaches, their implications for both cities, as well as the challenges for the ICZM framework and its future prospects. To research the role of the local context an analytic framework of Comparative Environmental Politics (CEP) was chosen. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with stakeholders, who participate in decision making or have an active role locally. Thematic coding was used to analyze the data with Atlas.ti software. Results show that ICZM framework is significantly dependent on the local context, including but not limited to the historical emergence of institutions, power dynamics, and environmental activism. One of the most interesting findings suggests that green movements can also have an adverse effect on environmental management. As a result, international ICZM agenda should always consider the local aspects in order to succeed in fighting global and local environmental challenges today and in the future. .
