Taking steps toward marine and coastal ecosystem-based management: an introductory guide

Agardy, Tundi ; Davis, John ; Sherwood, Kristin ; Vestergaard, Ole (2011)

This guide is intended to complement UNEP's work, such as the Green Economy providing guidance on making changes in the way we interact with ecosystems, as well as the Blue Carbon Initiative, which explores the potential for mitigating climate change by investing and re-investing in healthy coastal ecosystems that capture and store carbon. Moreover, good EBM offers a valuable solution for harnessing marine and coastal ecosystems in adapting to climate change and other potential disasters.
