Integrated Coastal Management

From Post-Graduate to Professional Coastal Manager: A Teaching Manual

Integrated coastal management is unquestionably important, but it’s extremely difficult in practice because it requires skills derived from various disciplines. In order to succeed, coastal managers must overcome disciplinary boundaries and construct a holistic vision that is both practical and unique to their profession. This manual provides university teachers with a three-module course to train professional coastal managers. As many students and teachers in this field are from the natural sciences, the focus is on embedding social science concepts and approaches into education for coastal management.
