Symposium on Coastal Resource Management and Development

29 – 30 November 2011
Diponegoro University

Hosted by
Journal of Coastal Development
An official journal of ISOI
and supported by
Directorate General of Higher Education
Ministry of National Education


Despite their richness on natural resources that have served the coastal population, coastal ecosystems have been focal points of human settlement and marine resource use throughout history. Long terms of overexploitation, habitat transformation, and pollution have obscured the total magnitude of coastal degradation and biodiversity loss and have undermined their ecological resilience.
Coastal zones and their resources are also threatened by the effect of climate change including global warming. The occurrences of coral bleaching, seawater rise, and the emerging coral diseases have become serious problem in the coastal areas.
Integrating management and development issues in a scientific manner, the symposium will provide an opportunity for regulator, environmental managers, academics, scientists and decision makers to develop and promulgate innovative methodologies, techniques, and policies used for management and development of coastal and marine resources.
The many subdiciplines involved in the management and development of coastal and marine issues can come together in one forum.
