Abstract
This dissertation is a study proposal to enhance marine environmental
management in the Kingdom of Cambodia. The aims of this topic are to elaborate
the current management system, national legislation, and the present and future risks
to the marine environment.
A short view is concentrated on the overall environmental management
system, basically the structure of the Ministry of Environment and other
governmental institutions involved with the management of marine environment.
Economic factors, coastal and offshore development, inadequate legislation
and institutional cooperation, and maritime transport activities cause present and
future degradations to the marine environment. The relevant international
conventions and agreements related to the marine environment have been considered
to integrate the main concept into the national legislation, which is convenient for the
sustainable use of marine resources and development.
