In Campos dos Goytacazes municipality, the articulation of Orla Project involves the three branches of power and the representation of civil society. It started in December 2009 aiming to promote the sustainable management of the waterfront and ensure environmental preservation and coastal planning. The overall objective of this paper is to register the project implementation process, exposing met steps, stakeholder participation, issues of interest and results. The municipality is responsible for membership, and with civil society, by the most direct action in project. They work in diagnostic steps, subdivision into landscape units and stretches, uses surveys, problem identification and preparation of desired sce-narios. The conflicts over the use of natural areas come up against the already established activities and identified as generating issues such as trade, fisheries, tourism and civil construction. The PGI (Integrated Management Plan) was consolidated and submitted to the assessment of instructor of the Orla Project, in March 2014, who attested its adaptation to the specific methodology.

The PGI and the Steering Committee were finally approved in open court on 16 May 2015. It is noteworthy that it was the first approval in the state of Rio de Janeiro.
