Integrated Coastal and Marine Management
Introduction to the concepts, principles, approaches, and issues associated with sustainable management of coastal zones and oceans resources worldwide. The course will illustrate the complexity of economic, social and natural system interactions in coastal and marine environment. It gives an overview of different management strategies such as ecosystem based management and community based management as well as the meaning of integration in the governing of natural resources. Success and failure of integrated coastal and ocean management will be discussed as well as integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) in the European Union. Different coastal and marine policies and plans in the arctic areas will be introduced in the field of fisheries, energy development, marine pollution, tourism development and nature conservation. Students will participate in a 3 day field trip where divergent issues from the course are assessed and discussed from different perspectives.
