Coastal Planning and Management by Robert Kay and Jackie Alder pdf free download. Coastlines are the world’s most important and intensely used of all areas settled by humans. It is this simple fact that directs special attention to the planning and management of coastlines. Coastal resources have been, and will continue to be, placed under multiple, intense and often competing pressures. The use of techniques which attempt to assist in managing the resulting conflicts in a sustainable way will therefore become increasingly important in both developed and developing countries. Translating sustainable development principles into tangible actions aimed at improving the long-term management of coastal areas is the main purpose of this book.

We do this by providing practical guidance through the dual use of theoretical analysis and numerous examples of best practice from around the world. We draw on our personal experience and the contributions of practising coastal planners, managers and academics from three continents. Copyright 1999 Taylor & Francis Group We have chosen to focus the book on coastal planning, management and the nexus between them. We believe that achieving genuine sustainable development in coastal areas will be extremely difficult, but without proper planning it will be impossible.

Planning helps governments to reconcile the apparently conflicting aims of sustainable development: to promote the economic development of coastal resources while attempting to preserve their ecological, cultural and social uses. We believe a key component of coastal planning efforts is to harness the energy of coastal residents and industrial and recreational users in the day-to-day management of coastal areas. We show practical examples of stakeholder participation in coastal planning, including collaborative management and co-management approaches.

One of the biggest challenges faced by governments is to direct financial and human resources effectively to the management of coastal areas through administrative systems established on sectoral lines. Sectoral-based systems of government focus on each part of a government’s operations, such as transport, employment, health and environment. These systems do not explicitly focus on the planning and management of discrete geographic areas, such as coastal areas. Governments have chosen to face this challenge through various mechanisms to coordinate and/or integrate fuctions within coastal areas. These mechanisms are critically analysed throughout the book.
