The National Coastal Zone Management Program monitors and evaluates the success of its efforts through national performance measures. A performance measurement system is used to evaluate progress in meeting national goals. Annual performance goals cover five categories: coastal habitat, coastal hazards, coastal community development, public access, and coordination and public involvement. Contextual information is also collected, including information about socio-economic, natural hazard, and other environmental trends along the coast. These indicators provide context for the performance measurement data collected by state programs.
