Making Waves
W. Neil Adger Katrina Brown Emma L. Tompkins
Price: $ 29.95

Coasts are dynamic and restless entities and define the edge of human habitation. If we desire to conserve the nature of coasts, we must conserve their dynamism ¿ but this is not always easy.

Coastal zones are critical multiple-use resources, under pressure from constant demands from different sources ¿ conservation, economic growth and social welfare. Making Waves identifies the dilemmas of managing conservation and development in coastal areas. It is packed with important and timely information and tools for the management, conservation and assessment of social implications of coastal resource use.

The authors present a variety of methods and techniques that can be used to highlight the trade-offs and promote sustainable decisions among diverse users. Their interdisciplinary analysis draws upon the latest scientific knowledge as well as social science insights on property rights and governance, with cases from the developed and developing world.

The book is important reading for researchers and students in geography, development studies and environmental planning and also for practitioners in natural resource management and coastal zone management.
