|Objectives of the course
The coastal zone-where the land meets the sea- contains many of the earth’s most complex, diverse and productive ecological systems. Already more than 60 percent of the world' s population lives within 60 kilometers of the coast and two-thirds of cities with population over 2.5 million are situated near estuaries. Coastal zones are often placed under multiple and intense pressures.
The course allows participants to develop skills in the management of coastal zones by examining the available technical and analytical frameworks.
Middle and senior managers, decision makers, policy advisors, project managers, staff and experts from international organisations
and institutions, academic researchers, students, and all others interested in coastal management. It is expected that participants would have a graduate qualification and work experience prior to coming on the course. More:
