TURKEY: Coastal zone development, Cesme

Like many comparable areas, Cesme shows a combination of declining rural infrastructure in its hinterland, and atthe same time a rapid growth of touristic developments, both in large scale resorts and a considerable number of smaller, private second home and condominiums.

Not all the developments are optimal, as many only partially completed construction sites, incomplete landscaping, and unmanaged waste dumps as well as a number of outfalls into the coastal littoral document.
