This Decree consisting of 2 articles applies to all private property areas adjacent to the sea. It allows for the exploitation of the maritime public domain on condition that the government approves the nature of the proposed project and area sought for exploitation. Additionally, the Decree allows any resort owner to use three times the surface area of the resort plot to construct a marina, provided that requires that the marina builder owns all the plots of land the marina would be connected to. By principle, the maritime public domain remains for the use of everybody. Granting authorizations has to meet the following conditions: projects to be executed should have a public character tourist and industrial justification according to certificates issued by competent services; involve large private lands adjacent to the maritime public domain with appropriate dimension (i.e. surfaces, length on sea front, depth) in order to be available for containing big projects; the investment is not an obstacle to the unity of the beach; permanent structures and constructions on maritime public domain are not allowed, only movable ones are allowed when related to sports and equipment; the project submitted has to specify all the technical details and justifications of the spaces allocated.

Following World War I, France acquired a mandate over the northern portion of the former Ottoman Empire province of Syria. The French demarcated the region of Lebanon in 1920 and granted this area independence in 1943. Since independence the country has been marked by periods of political turmoil interspersed with prosperity built on its position as a regional center for finance and trade. The country's 1975-90 civil war that resulted in an estimated 120,000 fatalities, was followed by years of social and political instability. Sectarianism is a key element of Lebanese political life.
