Coastal Zone Management (In 2 Volumes)

Ramakrishnan Korakandy (Author)
Synopsis Coastal zones which house multiple activities of the coast, ranging from fishing, forestry, agriculture, aquaculture, mining, manufacturing, ports, tourism, transport, defense, power production, etc, to housing, urban development, water supply, waste dumping, etc., have also become theatres of mounting conflicts, for natural resource appropriation by a growing number of stake holders, world wide. Sustaining the multiple uses of the coast is considered vital for our survival. Integrated coastal zone management is credited to promotes sustainable development of the coast. Coastal zone management in India and particularly in Kerala, is considered vital for sustaining the development of the over populated under-developed regions of the coast. The present book brings to the fore the fundamental principles and approaches of coastal zone management and examines the issue of coastal zone management in Kerala, India. It has delved deep on the global developments in the field and studied the need for integrated management of the coastal zones of Kerala. The book is presented in ten chapters, the first four dealing with global developments and the remaining six exclusively with the domestic situation. The book has, while analyzing the political economy of sustainable development and coastal zone management, found an element of strategic planning by advanced nations for liberalization, privatization and gobalisation of the exploitation of the ‘scarce’ natural resources of the third world coasts. On hind sight, this book has also questioned the western liberal approach to (n) sustainable development in the guise of new concepts of integrated coastal zone management. This book is critical, clear and comprehensive in its approach. It should be a valuable reference material for all concerned with ‘sustainable development’, worldwide.
