Why Coastal Policy is Important
loves the seashore and the coast. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric
Administration estimates that
- by 2011 the population density along the American coasts will be well over 400 people per square mile, 4x the rest of the country;
- there are 23 U.S. coastal states and over 100 countries;
- a substantial proportion of the world population outside the United States is also “coastal.”
This creates lots of issues affecting coastal life requiring urgent attention. We know that from the recent killer hurricanes to the threat of global warming and rising seas.
Coastal policy in the United States has been disjointed. The Providence (R.I) Journal said it's " ... a jumble of federal and state agencies and 43 congressional committees have jurisdiction over the oceans and coasts."
New U.S.and international coastal policy efforts require bold, integrated policy-making and public participation, volunteer work, and cooperation with private business.
