Beach Management

This comprehensive book provides full coverage of beach management principles and practice, with an emphasis on needs-based management. Part I covers beach management principles and theory, and addresses practical management tools and guidelines, including how to determine the best management strategy for different beach types (linear, pocket, resort, urban, village, rural and remote) as well as how to include user preferences and priorities in effective management plans. Part II provides a wealth of case studies showcasing best (and worst) practice, authored by a cast of international beach experts from the UK, US, New Zealand, the Mediterranean and Latin America. The emphasis throughout the book is on optimizing economic, social and environmental outcomes and reconciling competing needs in management planning for beach areas.
