Coasts and Conflicts

Towards harmonisation and integration in the Mediterranean

Elisabeth Conrad and Louis F Cassar

xvii + 149 pages. 2007.
Coast and Conflicts
The coast is one of the most, active and varied of the Earth’s geomorphological features, providing a dynamic canvas for a multitude of human activities. The link between land and sea has been critical in shaping the unique identity of Mediterranean Basin, yet this region is increasingly characterized by unsustainability, threatening natural environments and the future of Mediterranean societies. Targeting those involved in managing coastal resources, this book provides a concise and holistic overview of coastal management issues and techniques in the Mediterranean Basin, combining conceptual approaches and theoretical background with techniques for day-to-day management of coastal environments in this unique region.
