9780128027486: Coastal Zones: Solutions for the 21st Century

Coastal Zones: Solutions for the 21st Century bridges the gap between national and international efforts and the local needs for actions in communities where coastal zone challenges are faced daily. The solution-oriented approach covers issues of coastal zone management as well as responses to natural disasters. This work provides ideas on how to face the challenges, develop solutions, and localize management of common-pool resources. Coastal Zones targets academic stakeholders and coastal stakeholders who have local knowledge and experience but need a theoretical framework and a greater range of skills to make use of this experience. * Represents the collaborative work of more than 200 coastal zone researchers from all continents* Provides a transdisciplinary approach that draws on stakeholder knowledge as well as diverse disciplines in the natural and social sciences* Provides a basis for the co-development of an effective understanding of social-ecological systems in the coastal zone

About the Author:

After earning a double degree in geology and oceanography, Juan went on to receive his PhD in 2004. During his time as a student, he participated in eight oceanographic research cruises. As researcher of the Versailles University, Juan's work focuses on the evolution and current state of the coastal and oceanic system, ranging from the coast to the deep sea. Much of his work incorporates his interest in the earth-human system and investigates the ways in which humans modify "natural" processes, with a specific emphasis on ethics in relation to concerns of coastal communities. Since 2007, Juan has drawn from his firm commitment to collaborative, ethical, and interdisciplinary research to coordinate Marine Sciences for Society: a network of researchers working to enhance the dialogue between scientists and society as a whole. Professor at the Universit de Moncton, for several years, Omer Chouinard has worked with the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence Coalition on Sustainability, fishermen's unions, watersheds organizations in New Brunswick, and with many coastal and island communities. He was part of the Canadian aquaculture research network, AQUANET, and is often called as an expert on issues of integrated management, coping, and social economy. Bethany Jorgensen graduated from the University of Chicago in 2008 and is currently a graduate student at the University of Maine. She has been an editor for Marine Sciences For Society since 2009, and became a co-coordinator of the group in 2014. After a career in oceanography, studying especially the links between phytoplankton and physical processes, Paul Tett is now Reader in Coastal Systems at the Scottish Association for Marine Science, thinking about the relationships between coastal ecological and social systems. Jean-Paul Vanderlinden is a Professor of Environmental Studies and Ecological Economics at the Universit de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (UVSQ). Additionally, he is the coordinator of the "Adaptation Research, a Trans-disciplinary Transnational Community and Policy Centred Approach project from the International Group of Funding Agencies for Global Change Research. Dr. Liette Vasseur is a full professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Brock University, and is also a member of the Brock Environmental Sustainability Research Centre and Women and Gender Studies Program. She was recently nominated as a UNESCO Chair titled "Community-based sustainability: from local to global . Her research focuses on sustainability and sustainable development in natural resource based communities using an ecosystemic transdisciplinary approach. She is currently involved in codirecting a large community-university research project with Canadian coastal communities on adaptation to climate change.
