By result of the subtle interaction of many variables, the coastal environments are characterized by being marked by the axiomatic complexity of active phenomena.The model ruler urbanization on the national scene, prints to the limits of the coast a relation of secular use, where the urbanization process reflected in different levels of impact on the impairment of the systemic functioning of the coastal environment, reflecting on maximizing gravity processes, flooding processes and complete instability of ecosystems associated those space. When considering the nature frailty and the relation of land use in the state of Bahia and more specific form in the Whale Coast Region, this project aims to conducting a study of Geoenvironmental Zoning for the entire Whale Coast taking as perspective contribute to better land use planning. Using survey and analysis of natural and socio-economic frame, the main objective is to elaborate a Geoenvironmental Zoning applied to Whale Coast Region from the systemic approach, using zoning methodology proposed by Rodriguez, Silva and Cavalcanti (2004) in landscape Geoecology, by presenting a mapping on 1:250,000 scale as a final product.The final results of this study could contribute in helping to plan the use and occupation of land and provide support to urban and environmental planning in the area in order to minimize environmental impacts that corresponds to the scenario of the study area.
