Section 2: Areas of Environmental Concern Areas of Environmental Coastal development and areas of environmental concern book (AECs) are the foundation of the Coastal Resources Commission's permitting program for coastal development.

An AEC is an area of natural importance: it may be easily destroyed by erosion or flooding; or it may have environmental, social, economic or aesthetic values that. As a part of this program, the Coastal Resources Commission (CRC) designated "Areas of Environmental Concern" within the 20 coastal counties and set rules for managing development within these areas.

Popula-tion growth, land devel-opment, and resort de-velopment are all particularly intense along the coast. Coastal areas are experiencing high growth rates, and the beach is a popular destination for vacations, second homes, and retirement.

Property on or near the shore is always in high demand and as a conse-quence usually expensive. number of recommendations are highlighted and hopefully, it can guide the concern parties in constructing related strategies that can assist the coastal community in lessening the impacts of the environmental changes.

Keywords: Coastal Community, Environmental Management, Community Development Introduction. Coastal Environment. The coastal zone is an interface between the land and sea, which comprised of a continuum of coastal land, intertidal area, aquatic systems including the network of rivers and estuaries, islands, transitional and intertidal areas, salt marshes, wetlands, and.

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern or ACEC designations highlight areas where special management attention is needed to protect important historical, cultural, and scenic values, or fish and wildlife or other natural resources. ACECs can also be designated to protect human life and safety from natural hazards.

ACECs can only be designated during the land-use planning. This book describes critical environmental issues that face coastal ocean and Great Lakes areas, including eutrophication, habitat modification, hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption, exploitation of resources, toxic effects on ecosystems and humans, introduction of nonindigenous species, global climate change and variability, and shoreline erosion and hazardous storms.

Tourism in coastal areas is one of the fastest growing types of the world tourism industry, but whether it destroys more than it protects will depend upon how it is put into practice.

Tourism development in the coastal environment has interfaced with the attractiveness of the. The Great Barrier Reef catchment is used for agriculture, urban and industrial development, mining, port activities and island development.

While these activities provide many economic and social benefits, coastal developments can have a negative impact on the Reef’s health. Areas of Environmental Concern (AECs) are the foundation of the Coastal Resources Commission's permitting program for coastal development.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reports that coastal wetlands in the eastern part of the U.S. are disappearing twice as fast as they can restore themselves. Protection From the Storm Coastal wetlands reduce the impact of storm surges and protect land that lies further inland during storms.

Specific situation of coastal areas. Coastal areas are transitional areas between the land and sea characterized by a very high biodiversity and they include some of the richest and most fragile ecosystems on earth, like mangroves and coral reefs. At the same time, coasts are under very high population pressure due to rapid urbanization processes.

More than half of today’s world population. The Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Program regulates structures and activities which can cause beach erosion, destabilize dunes, damage upland properties, or interfere with public access.

CCCL permits also protect sea turtles and dune plants. Here you will find CCCL Program topics to help guide CCCL permit applicants, and educate the public on the coastal construction permit program. Bangladesh, with an area ofkm 2, features a flood plain landscape and several river systems throughout the landscape provides the major natural resources of water, land, fisheries, forests, and wildlife.

The country currently faces several environmental issues which threaten these resources, including groundwater metal contamination, increased groundwater salinity. A coastal development hazard is something that affects the natural environment by human activities and products As coasts become more developed, the vulnerability component of the equation increases as there is more value at risk to the hazard.

The likelihood component of the equation also increases in terms of there being more value on the coast so a higher chance of hazardous situation occurring. Coastal ports are also prime sites for entry of invasive pests and diseases.

Governance issues are highly complex in coastal areas. The importance of coastal assets means that many interest groups place demands on local, state and national governments. Ocean & Coastal Management is an international journal published 12 times per year dedicated to the study of all aspects of ocean and coastal management at international, national, regional, and local levels.

Sustainable development and conservation of ocean and coastal resources requires the insights of a number of monodisciplinary, multidisciplinary as well as integral studies and approaches. the built environment within coastal areas have all been identified as sectors requiring specific interventions to ensure that the oceans and coastal environment continues to deliver goods and services to society.

Problems in the Small Islands Environment The ocean covers more than two thirds of our planet, and small island developing States are generally somewhere in the middle of it. Their environmental priorities concern the islands themselves and their immediate coastal areas, where the balance of population and resources is critical for the future.

The conversion of natural lands to croplands, pastures, urban areas, reservoirs, and other anthropogenic landscapes represents the most visible and pervasive form of human impact on the environment ().Today, roughly 40% of Earth’s land surface is under agriculture, and 85% has some level of anthropogenic influence ().Author: Alex de Sherbinin, David Carr, Susan Cassels, Leiwen Jiang.

Coastal zone conflicts: Conflicts in coastal zones are interesting in that they could develop from a combination of other types of conflicts. In this issue, Ahmed () considers such conflicts in particular and highlights that coastal areas are unique in the dynamics they produce around environmental.
