subduction zone offshore Sumatra received relatively little attention prior to the earthquake and tsunami. In their book, The Geology of Earthquakes, Yeats et al. () only briefly mention Sumatra in the chapter on subduction zone megathrusts. The newfound attention following the 80°E °E °E °E °E –20°S 0° 20°N. Unified coastal zone management is a system for resource management, development control, and conflict resolution in the coastal zone. A coastal zone management program integrates the concerns of the relevant economic sectors and societal interests. It anticipates resource impacts and offers solutions. The primary aim of coastal zone. Charoenca N () Tropical coastal pollution: a case study of Pattaya. In: Hay JE, Chou LM (eds), Contributions to training in coastal zone management in the Asia-Pacific region and report of the first NETTLAP resources development workshop for education and training at Tertiary level in coastal zone Cited by: 4. The coastal region is thus, a place of hectic human activity and the coastal ecosystems are now highly disturbed and threatened tremendously. Current approaches to the management of coastal resources were not capable of sustainable development and the coastal environments and resources are rapidly degraded and eroded in India.

Coastal Zones: Solutions for the 21st Century bridges the gap between national and international efforts and the local needs for actions in communities where coastal zone challenges are faced daily. The solution-oriented approach covers issues of coastal zone management as well as responses to . • In order to Properly address Coastal Resource Management, it must be recognized that impacts to the coastal / marine environment also comes from Land Based Sources (LBS); ie. developments on land such as Agriculture, Cattle Rearing, and Settlements, all have impacts on the coastal areas. • How to manage these conflicts? The threats to coastal ecosystems can really be summarised under two main headings, population growth and coastal development. Firstly as population grows more and more land is needed to support agriculture and human settlement. This results in projects such as wetland drainage for agriculture. A short description of coastal environments and their nomenclature follows, together with a brief review of the exploitation of the coastal zone resources. Particular attention is paid to the problems of either natural or man-induced origin, related to the intense occupancy of the coastal zone area.

vided by the coastal zone and to minimize the conflicts and harmful effects of activities upon each other, on resources and on the environment. It starts with an analytical process to set objec-tives for the development and management of the coastal zone. ICZM should ensure that the pro-cess of setting objectives, planning and implemen. Key Challenges in Coastal and Marine Area Management. The major issues relate to misuse, overuse and abuse of resources, degradation of ecosystems (albeit with some improvement in recent years), conflicts among stakeholders, increasing damages from coastal hazards, threats to livelihood security, growing pressure from and demand for economic infrastructure, and the overarching concern for. The Sunda Strait is a transitional zone between the Java perpendicular and Sumatra oblique subductions (e.g. Huchon and Le Pichon, ;Malod et al., ; Barber et al., ). A volcanic. Coastal areas face increasing pressures from land use change, developmental activities, shoreline erosion, biodiversity losses and natural calamities. This volume addresses these issues facilitating the integrated analysis of the sustainability of coastal zones. The contributors have tried to focus.
