The Coastal Lake Assessment and Management Tool
Entry ID: CLAM
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Coastal Lake Assessment and Management Tool is a modelling approach that allows stakeholders to assess the social, economic and environmental trade-offs associated with development, remediation and use options for coastal lakes and estuaries.

CLAM was developed in a joint effort between the Integrated Catchment Assessment and Management Centre (iCAM) at the Australian National University, and the former NSW State Department of Natural Resources (now the Department of Environment and Climate Change, DECC).

It fulfils the need for sustainability assessments of NSW coastal lakes, as identified by the Healthy Rivers Commission Report in 2002. It's application is recognised in DECC's Estuary Management Plan Process and the Department of Planning's Regional Strategies.

CLAM is an ideal tool for Councils and Estuary Management Committees involved in:

-development, implementation and review of Estuary Management Plans (EMPs)

-Local Environmental Plans (LEPs) with rezoning of coastal lands

-directing future research

-adaptive management (planning, implementation, monitoring, review)
