The draft law is composed of several functions such as the national committee, provincial committee and local committee for CZM, coastal community, and management tools which included CZM policies and plans, marine protected areas, marine and coastal pollution control, standard of activities affecting the marine and coastal resources, environmental liability including punitive damages, and dispute resolution.
