Abstract – Coastal areas, as dynamic and ecologically significant regions, play a pivotal role in the interface between land and sea. They provide essential services to ecosystems, communities, and economies worldwide. However, these vital regions face increasing threats from climate change, urbanization, industrialization, and unsustainable resource exploitation. In response, Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) has emerged as a comprehensive approach to address these multifaceted challenges.
This research focuses on evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of the Romanian legal framework that underpins ICZM initiatives. It delves into the complexities of the legal mechanisms governing coastal management, assessing their capacity to manage and mitigate diverse coastal zone issues.


Keywords – coastal zone management, efficiency assessment, environmental conservation, integrated coastal zone management (ICZM), Romanian legal framework.
