    This paper proposes an approach for the identification and selection of a set of indicators for Integrated Coastal Zone Management. A structured approach to Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) calls for indicators to measure progress in, and effects of, ICZM policies. In the context of the EU FP7 funded project People for Ecosystem-based Goverance in Assessing Sustainable development of Ocean and coast (PEGASO) a set of indicators to primarily support the implementation of the ICZM Protocol for the Mediterranean has been developed. More generally, the aim was to provide a suite of indicators that can be applied at different scales, both in the Mediterranean and Black sea, as sustainability assessment tool, and as tool to measure the implementation of ICZM policies and programmes. In order to define a set of indictors able to respond to the needs of the ICZM Protocol and in order to promote an integrated approach to overcome the traditional sectorial (e. g. fishery, tourism, energy) one, it has been decided to link the PEGASO set of indicators to 10 ICZM policy objectives. These policy objectives reflect the principles of ICZM which can be found in Article 6 of the Protocol. The PEGASO set of ICZM indicators should not only serve as a descriptive tool but mainly as an analytical one for the understanding of the coastal system, being it a region (the Mediterranean or the Black Sea), a country or a local coastal area.
