The ICZM project of Magnesia in Greece, funded under the EU LIFE Programme, has provided a first chance for experimentation on procedures for integrated coastal planning at the local level. In a country where the mechanisms and the procedures of planning have failed repetitively and been replaced by market mechanisms, the main objective was to set the appropriate conditions for sustainable coastal management. A first intervention was the creation of a strong database, a Geographical Information System (GIS), which aimed at the improvement of decision making. The second intervention was the experimentation with consultation and participation pro cedures. At the end of this project we have the information tools that are necessary for the management of Magnesia's coastal zone and are wiser about consultation and participation procedures.
