Policy Sociology as a Management Method for Coastal Areas

Ananda Mahardika


Policy is a dimension in the science of public administration which has a role as a mechanistic action of the government in providing services and overcoming public problems. The policy contains 3 (three) components which include actions, strategies and solutions. The three components will be implemented in government actions in the form of services and programs aimed at addressing public problems. One of these policies can be used as a means to manage coastal areas. Problems that occur in coastal areas have their own uniqueness. Coastal characteristics store conflicting potentials and problems. The potential of coastal resources that tend to be productive is faced with the potential of poverty maintained in people's lives. Therefore, to manage coastal areas, a policy method that can reach all available access in coastal areas is needed. The policy method that can be used to manage coastal areas is the Policy Sociology Method. Policy Sociology has an Accses to reach every aspect in the coastal area, both the Potential and Problem aspects. The combination of Sociology and Policy approaches provides a more comprehensive analysis space to disentangle individual and group sociological conditions, until that can be sufficient capital to design actions, strategies and solutions that will be included in the management of coastal areas.
