Securing the Oceans. Essays on Ocean Governance. Global and Regional Perspectives

The volume contains essays written by 25 authors in their different capacities as scientists, economists, lawyers, teachers, managers, users of marine resources, national and international civil servants, and administrators. This book is primarily aimed at increasing the awareness of the general public on coasts and oceans and at strengthening their understanding of the functioning of the ocean, land-sea interactions, ocean dynamics and ecosystem functioning. Parts I, II and III of the book bring out the global perspective on ocean governance. Various case studies put forward the interconnectivity between regional seas in terms of political, socioeconomic, cultural, and especially ecological linkages. Part IV underscores the paradigm shift in the traditional concept of ocean governance to a more proactive and dynamic approach in securing the ocean for peaceful use. This chapter includes the conclusions forwarded by the participants in a regional workshop on “Securing the Oceans” at the 2006 East Asian Seas Congress. The conclusions and recommendations from the EAS Congress 2006 are published in two issues of the Tropical Coasts.
