Summary
"Coastal Waters of the World is a comprehensive reference source on the state of the world's coastal areas. Don Hinrichsen presents the origins and implications of the overwhelming threats to our coastal resources and seas from population and pollution, unsustainable economic activity, and the lack of rational coastal management plans. The heart of the book is thirteen regional profiles, presented in a standard format to allow for ease of comparison, detailing the main population, resource, and management challenges facing each of the world's major coastal waters and seas." "Coastal Waters of the World will be a valuable resource for policymakers, management specialists, and students interested in sustainable coastal governance."--Jacket
