The coastal zone of Garut District is a region characterized by a strong influence of marine-terrestrial ecosystem transition. This condition results in a unique bioecoregion characteristics in terms of rich fishery and marine tourism biodiversity, which is potential for the growth of economy that is characterized with a tight bioecoregion and socioeconomic connectivity. Furthermore, this will bring an implication where a uniquely designed resource management is relevant. Recognizing the economic potential, the resulting complexity, and the management implication, this research was carried out to analyze the coastal zone management that is oriented at bioecoregion and socioeconomic connectivity. A qualitative descriptive case study approach was adopted in this research. The data used are primary data which were collected through questionnaire-guided interviews and focus group discussion, and secondary data gathered through literature review. The result shows that the most important factors to accounted for in coastal zone management in this region are: (1) interdependence among sectors, capture fishery and marine tourism, and (2) integration between social and economic systems. Based on this, this research recommends a synergized networking model which covers bioecoregion and socioeconomic connectivity elements for managing the coastal region.
