About this Book

Coastal waters around the globe suffer from strain due to a wide range of human activities. The situation calls for a holistic approach, combining expertise from nature and social science, to reach a balanced and sustainable development of the coastal zone.

This important book comprises the proceedings of The International Symposium on Integrated Coastal Zone Management, which took place in Arendal, Norway between 11-14 June 2007.  The main objective of the Symposium was to present current knowledge and to address issues on advice and management related to the coastal zone. The major themes of papers included in this book are:

  • Coastal habitats
  • Impacts on coastal systems
  • Integrated Coastal Zone Management
  • Coastal governance

Comprising a huge wealth of information, this timely and well edited volume is essential reading for all those involved in coastal zone management around the globe. All libraries in research establishments and universities where fisheries and aquatic sciences are studied and taught will need copies of this important volume on their shelves.
