As rapid development and population growth continue in coastal areas, environmental degradation and over-exploitation will further erode the biodiversity and undermine the productivity of these unique ecosystems.

Their importance in socio-economic frontiers has been increasingly felt. These have been used as main source of water supply, food, fodder, fuel, fishery, aquaculture, timber production, transport, ecotourism, culture and heritage, research and educational values.
