Abstract: Current developmental trends along the coast of Goa, India offer an opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) legislation. The mandatory 'No Development Zones' in proximity to, and as burrers for, ecosystems have sufficient oceanographic and environmental validity to be upheld. However, this instrument is being opposed and misinterpreted. Sectoral practices, partisan policies, unbalanced tourism, and absence of political will have all contributed to the CRZ being breached. A national outhority that can interact authoritatively with multiple agencies appears to be the only way to attenuate impacts on and restore resilience of coastal ecosystems
