About the product

In order to maintain the vital ecological linkages between rivers and the sea it is imperative to develop effective mechanisms for institutions that deal with fresh waters and the marine environment. This publication presents a conceptual framework for integrated coastal area and river basin management based on the hydrological, geochemical, ecological and socio-economic linkages. It also presents guidelines for strategic planning and implementing of procedures that would serve as benchmarks for the decision makers and environment and resource planners.
