Integrated Coastal and Ocean Management was conceived to address the difficult problem of managing among overlapping jurisdictions, competing coastal and ocean uses, and sensitive environments. Developed in conjunction with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, UNESCO, and the International Year of the Ocean, this volume is a practical guidebook for managers, policymakers, and activists who are seeking to build support for, develop, and implement functional, effective Integrated Coastal Management ICM programs. It is also valuable for students who wish to understand the background and mechanics of such programs.
