 The objective of this research is to analyze the Promoting Marine and Coastal Resources Management Act B.E 2558. The research will examine the roles and regulatory powers of the relevant governmental authorities, and the legal mechanisms for the management of marine and coastal resources. The research found that the Act adopts an ‘integrated’ approach in managing marine and coastal resources. This is achieved by requiring the participation from people and local communities. They are officially selected as the Committee in both national and provincial levels such as National Policy and Plan Committee for Marine and Coastal Resources Management, and Provincial Committee for Marine and Coastal Resources Management. In addition, the Act recognizes the status and the role of local communities in participating in Marine and Coastal resources management. The Act also delimits particular conservative areas and specifies the measures that will be used in each area such as the mangrove protected area, the protected resources from marine and coastal area, and the seashore erosion protected area. The Act further provides measures for managing damaged resources in cases of substantial and critical loss.
