improve the robustness of the coastal ecosystem and its ability to absorb human induced stress. The
Dec 10 thru 12, 2010 methodology provides sustainable development technology in building coastal resilience and pro-
moting biodiversity. This course is taught in a highly interactive framework facilitating the inter-
Friday-Sunday connection between technology education and practical real-world applications. Participants learn the
theoretical justifications for the approach and apply critical concepts in on-site "Field Experiences".
