  • Andrew Cooper


This text is the first of a number of 'Coastal Management Sourcebooks' produced by the CSI (Environment and Development in Coastal Regions and Small Islands) of UNESCO. The series aims to serve as a source of information, ideas and practical tools for environmentally sound management in coastal and small island areas. The book has a direct practical focus (it avoids philosophical discussion) and is aimed directly at property owners and prospective owners of coastal land mainly in the Caribbean area. The book comprises three sections: 1. a series of case studies with practical responses; 2. a guide for prospective investors; and 3. a section suggesting actions for protecting beaches.
