It includes a regional perspective on pre- and post-tsunami coastal planning and land-use policies for each of these countries as well as examples of improved coastal zone planning and management and a range of perspectives on coastal zone planning and management. This report was published by the FAO in 2007.

    Description
    This report examines the land-based sources and activities that affect the quality and uses of the marine, coastal and associated freshwater environment including the most serious problems of alteration and destruction of habitats and ecosystems, effects of sewage on human health, widespread and increased eutrophication, declines of fish stocks and other renewable resources and changes in sediment flows due to hydrological changes. It was published in 2001.

    Reefs at risk revisited in the Coral Triangle

    Description
    This report analyses the threats to coral reefs around the world, focusing particularly on the countries of the Coral Triangle - including Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. It examines present pressures on coral reefs, including overfishing and destructive fishing, coastal development, and pollution from land and sea, as well as projected threats from climate-related ocean warming and acidification. It also studies the social and economic vulnerability of countries to reef loss and examines existing management efforts.

    Review of mangrove and seagrass ecosystems and their linkage to fisheries and fisheries management

    Description
    This report reviews the scientific literature that has been published on the extent of mangrove and seagrass habitats and their relationship to fisheries production. The principal findings reveal that the linkages between fisheries and mangrove or seagrass vary by species and life stage and recommends the need for a more holistic approach to the management of coastal environments and the fisheries they contain. This report was published by the FAO in 2013.

    River salinity and climate change: evidence from coastal Bangladesh

    Description
    This paper presents a study conducted in Bangladesh, which quantifies the prospective relationship between climate-induced changes in sea level, temperature, rainfall, and altered riverine flows from the Himalayas, and the spread and intensity of salinization on river water in the coastal zone for 2050. It predicts that these changes will lead to significant drinking water shortages in coastal urban areas and scarcity of water for irrigation for dry-season agriculture. This report was published by the World Bank in 2014.

    Role of coastal forests in the mitigation of tsunami impacts, Part 1

    Description
    This report (in two parts) follows the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and evaluates the effectiveness of planting or managing trees and forests as a method of shielding coastlines from the physical aspects of tsunamis. It examines whether the devastation caused by this tsunami could have been reduced, the effectiveness of coastal forests as a solution, how coastal forests work as a barrier, implications for coastal forest management and whether coastal forests could become a liability. This report was published by the FAO in 2007.

    Vulnerabilities of fishing-dependent economies to disasters

    Description
    This report identifies countries that are most highly exposed to natural hazards, are highly dependent on the fisheries sector and have limited societal abilities to respond and adapt to the impacts of natural hazards and resulting disasters in order to determine the relative vulnerabilities of fisheries in these economies to the impacts of disasters. It defines the concept of vulnerability, identifies the frequency and mortality of natural disasters by country, determines adaptive capacity and vulnerability by country with recommendations for future research in this area. This report was published by the FAO in 2013.
