“Coastal Zone Management: United Nations Convention on Law of The Seas Unclos III” Book Review: The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) is an international treaty which was adopted and signed in 1982. It replaced the four Geneva Conventions of April, 1958, which respectively concerned the territorial sea and the contiguous zone, the continental shelf, the high seas, fishing and conservation of living resources on the high seas. The law of the sea is a body of public international law governing the geographic jurisdictions of coastal States and the rights and duties among States in the use and conservation of the ocean environment and its natural resources. In this book we get insights of new institutions on the international scenarios: the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, the International Seabed Authority, the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.

2. “Global Challenges in Integrated Coastal Zone Management” by Einar Dahl and Josianne Støttrup

“Global Challenges in Integrated Coastal Zone Management” Book Review: This book covers the 2nd International Symposium on Integrated Coastal Zone Management, which took place at Arendal, Norway in July, 2011. The main objective of this conference was to present current knowledge and to address issues on advice and management related to the coastal zone. The book covers a wide range of topics which are divided into four sections : Coastal habitats and ecosystem services, Adaptation/mitigation to change in coastal systems, Coastal governance and Linking science and management. This book proves to be extremely beneficial for professionals working in the field of coastal zone management.

3. “Perspectives on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (Environmental Science and Engineering)” by S Ramachandran and Luiz D de Lacerda

“Perspectives on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (Environmental Science and Engineering)” Book Review: In this comprehensive text, the reader finds out about the threats that are growing day by day because of humans in the coastal ecosystems. In order to handle the consequences of environmental changes to coastal zones, various agencies are thriving hard. Not only on the consequences but the agencies are also working on the causes of the threats. This book discusses the basic principles underpinning a more integrated approach to coastal management and highlights the obstacles that may be met in practice in both developed and developing countries. The book also throws light on planning and designing of practical implementation for effective management strategies.

“Coastal Zone Management in Yogyakarta Province” Book Review: The continuous process occurred at the ocean and land created a certain coastal typology based on the genesis process and its building material, thus every certain coastal typology will give characteristics to the landscape and various resources on the coastal zone. By zoning the coastal typology from its physical aspects of the land (subsequently called coastal physical topology ), it will ease in doing a correct coastal planning and management according to its condition. This response-process system divides the coastal physical topology into seven classes including coastal typology of land erosion coast, sub aerial deposition coast, volcanic coast, structurally shaped coast, wave erosion coast, marine deposition coast and coast built by organism. Recommendation for developing and managing coastal zone in area of interest is by developing the coastal natural resources suitable to its physical topology, because this will make the management of coastal zone for continuous development easier.

5. “Efficient Management of the Coastal Zone Environment” by Henrik Scharin

“Efficient Management of the Coastal Zone Environment” Book Review: Developing an integrated CZM program generally involves four phases: policy formulation, strategy planning (or preliminary planning and exploring options), program development (or developing master plans), and implementation which are thoroughly explained in this book. This book aims to determine the efficient load by connecting nitrogen abatement costs, within a river basin with the benefits of the improved sight depth. The final impact of a nitrogen deposition differs between sources due to different buffering capacity between source and recipient. It is of importance to consider differences in impact when comparing available abatement measures. The book also has explanations regarding real life applications, specifically the Baltic Sea case study.

“Management and Sustainable Development of Coastal Zone Environments” Book Review: Increasing pressures from land use, developmental activities, shoreline erosion, biodiversity losses and natural calamities cause a huge problem to coastal regions. This book presents these issues facilitating the integrated analysis of the sustainability of coastal zones. The authors have tried to focus their respective works on the problems that need urgent attention with regards to present day issues. Coastal Zone Management and its sustainability strategy should safeguard ecological security of the coastal areas, avoid pollution as well as exploitation of living and non living aquatic resources, protecting also the agrarian community and avian population and other floral and faunal breeding grounds has been discussed in this text . Articles present in this book have been selected on the basis of sound scientific findings hoping that it will help in developing meaningful regulations for future sustainable coastal management zones.

10. “Coastal Zone Management Imperative for Maritime Developing Nations (Coastal Systems and Continental Margins)” by imusti

“Coastal Zone Management Imperative for Maritime Developing Nations (Coastal Systems and Continental Margins)” Book Review: A comprehensive text built for academics and practitioners of coastal zone management world-wide focuses on building sustainable coastal regions. This book is based on the 1994 international workshop Integrated Coastal Zone Management, and brings together contributions by leading specialists both on basic concepts and on applications of coastal management. The work is divided into six parts, dealing with the conceptual framework of ICZM; regional and global aspects of coastal management; environmental assessment in ICZM; capacity building and technology transfer; monitoring and environmental analysis; and case studies and status of ICZM plans. The book also incorporates an interactive ICZM planning module, COSMO, which can be of use in designing a management plan for a coast. Long-term environmental effects of present-day actions are also considered while writing this book. This work is intended to give a broad coverage of conceptual and technical aspects of ICZM, and will be of use to operational executives as well as students of ICZM, environmental economists, policy-makers and senior managers in the international development agencies and governmental and non-governmental organizations.
