Abstract

Considering current pressures and threats, the complexity added by climate change and especially the prospect of increasing industrialization and human occupation for the São Paulo coast in the coming years, the present project aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the institutional arrangements for management and territorial planning of the coastal and marine zone and to identify opportunities to reverse this scenario in the future, having as a case study the São Paulo coast, in the context of macro-metropolis governance. Through the application of the environmental policy integration principle and the concept of institutional interplay, this 24 month research will reflect on the development of a possible multilevel and polycentric governance, both necessary to systematically connect and integrate seemingly incompatible objectives of economic competitiveness, social development and environmental protection and, therefore, guarantee sustainable development. The São Paulo coastline is an interesting case for analysis since, throughout its extension, it covers a wide diversity of ecosystems responsible for the provision of several environmental services and it has been impacted by climate change, great enterprises, population growth, and disorderly coastal occupation.
