Description

Coastal cities are now home to over 40% of the world's population. As coastal city populations continue
to grow, the impacts of both human-induced and natural disasters become all the more pressing. This e-
book demonstrates that there is much work to be done to secure the future of coastal cities throughout
the world. We know that sizeable numbers of the public as well as of the policy and research
communities are well on the way to appreciating and attempting to understand the critical circumstances
in which far too many coastal cities now find themselves. Yet, as these papers confirm, coastal cities
have a long way to go in mitigating further ecosystem damage and in adapting to current ecosystem
conditions.
