Challenging Coasts

Challenging Coasts

By Leontine E. Visser
Book Description

Following its launch at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) became a key tool for national governments and international organisations alike. This volume argues that transdisciplinarity is a necessary corollary of ICZM yet that work to date has insufficiently crossed disciplinary boundaries. Professor Visser has sought to fill that gap by bringing together a range of authors of wide geographical and disciplinary backgrounds who have consciously tried to challenge disciplinary limitations in their contributions to ICZM in theory and practice.

Kustzones zijn grensgebieden, waar milieu-aspecten, culturen en economische sectoren elkaar raken en beïnvloeden. Het multi-dimensionele karakter van kustzones staat in deze bundel centraal. Door belichting vanuit verschillende disciplinaire invalshoeken wordt duidelijk dat een completer begrip van de problematiek alleen wordt bereikt door middel van transdisciplinaire samenwerking tussen sociale and exacte wetenschappers. In negen hoofdstukken wordt de lezer geleid langs kustgebieden van de Stille Oceaan, Zuidoost Azie, West Afrika, Europa en Latijns Amerika. Aandacht gaat uit naar biodiversiteit, mariene park beheer, meervoudig ruimtegebruik, sociaal-economische verandering, en de juridische uitdagingen voor natuurbescherming.
