Vol 3 No 1 - Life On The Margin

Issued: 1994 (36 pages)

This issue looked at the build-up of the human population along the coastal fringes of the world, projected to increase by a billion in just 10 years, and the threatened impact of related coastal development on coral reefs, mangroves, coastal wetlands and global fish stocks. It tells the story of people’s efforts to save their own local environment and fishing resources – whether in Chesapeake Bay, Bombay [ Mumbai], Haiti or the Philippines. But it also shows the importance of national programmes of effective coastal management -- efforts that are still relevant.
