We have developed a new approach for classification of urban coastal areas accounting ecological sensitivity to help developmental and planning authorities. The current CRZ framework does not consider variations in biodiversity or landscapes in different regions along the coast and suffers from subjectivity. To improve the objectivity of the coastal area classification is the aim of the present work. A Geographical Information System (GIS) coupled Multi-criteria Decision Making (MCDM) approach is developed in this work to provide scientific rational for classifying coastal areas.
