Abstract

The social and economic consequences of coastal erosion and the concern generated have increased rapidly in Malaysia as development of coastal areas escalates. The need for a proper management of the coastal resource has never been so demanding until recently. Important human activities most often affected are agriculture, housing and urbanization, transportation and recreation. In managing these coastal activities, environmental impact assessment is an indispensable planning tool towards achieving a sustainable development. This paper address, in general, the environmental impact assessment procedures in Malaysia. The coastal activities requiring environmental impact assessment studies are also highlighted together with some guidelines associated with coastal activities.
