  1. 1. Towards Collaborative Coastal Management in Sri Lanka? A study of Special Area Management planning in Sri Lanka's coastal region

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Ingegerd Landstrom; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Social and economic geography; participation; partnership; local governace; coastal management; natural resource management; community; coastal zone; coastal region; Hikkaduwa; Sri Lanka; Kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the efforts to bring about a greater degree of local community participation in the use and management of Sri Lanka's coastal land and natural resources. Through the application of the Special Area Management (SAM) strategy in geographically distinct areas along the coast, the aim is to create collaborative arrangements - partnerships - that will enable coastal communities and local governments to work together with the Sri Lankan state and share responsibility and authority over the management of coastal land and natural resources.

  2. 2. Coral Reef Habitats and Fish Connectivity Implications for coastal management and fishery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Tove Lund Jörgensen; Stockholms universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; anthropogenic disturbance; coral reef habitat; fish community; coastal ecosystems; conservation management; spatial ecology; seascape perspective; holistic approach; Marine Ecotoxicology; marin ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : Coral reefs have one of the highest levels of biodiversity of all ecosystems in the world and are important for both human livelihood and food security throughout many tropical countries. However, due to increased anthropogenic pressure on marine ecosystems, especially during the last couple of decades, coral reefs have become critically over-fished, and many reefs are now in a degraded state and are facing additional future threats due to further over-exploitation, chemical pollution, sedimentation, and effects of climate change.

  3. 3. Groundwater resources in hard rock coastal terrains Insights into heterogeneity and spatial variability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Robert Earon; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Crystalline Rock; Groundwater Balance; Kinematic porosity; Groundwater Recharge; Water Security; Coastal Aquifer; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : Challenges regarding water security in hard rock coastal regions with limited soil cover are: a seasonal absence of recharge during times of peak residency, heterogeneity and variability of the fracture network, close proximity to saline water sources and spatially inconsistent storage and extraction. In areas where it is not feasible to connect residents to municipal water systems, a better understanding of the resilience of reservoirs is needed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Participation and Planning in the Management of Coastal Resource Conflicts: Case Studies in West Swedish Municipalities

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Inst. för globala studier, avd. för humanekologi, GU

    Author : Andrea Morf; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; planning; participation; natural resource management; coastal management; conflict management; Bohuslän; Sweden;

    Abstract : There is a growing concern about sustainable management of natural resources in coasal areas, which is expressed in a worldwide debate about integrated coastal management. Physical or territorial planning as a comprehensive approach to territorial management with routine procedures for public participation seems well suited to achieve integration across any administrative sectors, to support local stakeholder participation, and to enhance conflict management in coastal areas.

  5. 5. Tourism, Ecosystem Functions, and Human-Environmental Relations

    University dissertation from Stefan Gössling, Human Ecology Division, Finngatan 16, S-22362 Lund

    Author : Stefan Gössling; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Social geography; Ekologi; Ecology; Zanzibar.; world system theory; sustainable tourism; sustainable development; rainforests; human-environmental relations; groundwater; environmental consciousness; ecotourism; ecosystem functions; economic transition; cost-benefit analysis; coastal zone management; coastal communities; climate change; Air-traffic; biodiversity; Socialgeografi; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Abstract : The thesis aims at deconstructing the sustainable tourism paradigm: can tourism be "a global strategy for sustainable development", as the tourist industry claims? And will developing countries in particular profit from tourism development?To most international organizations and institutions (from the World Wide Fund for Nature to The World Bank), tourism, if carefully managed, is a positive, sustainable development tool. However, the research presented in this thesis exposes this view as unrealistically optimistic for at least three reasons: first of all, global environmental change caused by tourism has never been investigated and integrated with the discourse on sustainable tourism development.
