[Steven F Edwards]. Book Description Coastal zones represent a frontline in the battle for sustainability, as coastal communities face unprecedented economic challenges. Coastal ecosystems are subject to overuse, loss of resilience and increased vulnerability.

This book aims to interrogate the multi- scalar complexities in creating a more sustainable coastal zone. The application of economic concepts to understand the causes of coastal zone degradation and overuse is fundamental as it allows policy makers to understand underlying issues and the incentives required for changing human Size: 2MB.

Introduction to Economics for Coastal Managers Describes basic economic concepts and methods and explains how state and local government officials can use them to make better-informed decisions Describes basic economic concepts and methods and explains how state and local government officials can use them to make better-informed decisions.

Coastal zones are under increasing stress because of an interrelated set of planning failures including information, economic market, and policy intervention failures. Moves towards integrated. This book applies the ‘ecosystem services’ framework to coastal environments, showing how it could facilitate an adaptive management strategy.

The contributors describe a decision support system (DSS) based on the 3 Ps – pluralism, pragmatism and precaution – that leads to a more flexible, ‘learn. Introduction to Coastal Engineering and Management This book is intended to be a text for undergraduate students of coastal engineering.

The practice of integrated coastal zone management (ICZM), like ecosystem-based management and watershed management, is a quest for holistic management that integrates biophysical and social issues within coherent physical geographic zones.

ICZM remains a largely unfulfilled quest, in spite of some impressive progress in the last couple of decades. DeltaStep is a social initiative by graduates of IIM-Ahmedabad, IIM-Bangalore, IIT-Kharagpur, ISI-Kolkata, Columbia University (USA), NTU (Singapore) and other leading institutes.

4 States also have exclusive rights to engage in offshore. Coastal Zones. A coastal zone is the interface between the land and water. These zones are important because a majority of the world's population inhabit such zones. Coastal zones are continually changing because of the dynamic interaction between the oceans and the land.

The Blue Economy is a developing world initiative pioneered by SIDS but relevant to all coastal states and countries with an interest in waters beyond national jurisdiction.

SIDS have always been highly dependent upon the seas for their well-being but the Blue Economy, whilst encompassing the concept of ocean-based economies, goes far beyond that.

Coastal ecosystem management needs to consider the fragile nature of these island ecosystems, incorporating the local area condition and the interests of the people. In the present case, the following measures are need to be considered: (1) Periodic monitoring of marine waters and resources will help in understanding the health of the coastal ecosystem and to detect areas becoming degraded.

Coastal engineering is a branch of civil engineering concerned with the specific demands posed by constructing at or near the coast, as well as the development of the coast itself. The hydrodynamic impact of especially waves, tides, storm surges and tsunamis and (often) the harsh environment of salt seawater are typical challenges for the coastal engineer – as are the morphodynamic changes.
