Maritime Affairs: Integrated Management for India

Commander Manoj Gupta (Author)

The increased focus on the oceans due to changing strategic, political, legal, environmental, economic, social and technological changes in the maritime environment calls for a shift in the management perception of maritime affairs. The challenge for ocean governance is the realization that ‘decision making’ due to the complexity of the issue and inadequate ‘knowledge’ of the multidisciplinary and interdependent issues poses a problem. A maritime strategy requires nations to synthesise their political, legal, diplomatic and operational responses in the management of their maritime zones. India needs to synergise the trinity of policy spheres-economic development, environmental protection and maritime security. The emergence of the Integrated Management paradigm forms the basis for the sustainable development of India’s maritime zone. It may be said that the management of maritime affairs is about strategic intent to meet the needs of all stakeholders across all maritime sectors. The book brings together the economic, environmental and security trinity of ocean policy spheres that derive their growing integration from the regimen of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) defined under the UN Law of the Sea, to serve as the cornerstone of ‘Ocean Governance’ for the 21st Century. The book targets not only those who have responsibilities for or are interested in India’s maritime affairs (bureaucrats, industrialists, law enforcers, defence personnel, academicians, scientists, NGOs and citizen groups) but the people of India in general. The book provides an opportunity and the means to meet our obligation of providing a safe, clean, secure and sustainable maritime legacy.
