Describing the emerging and unresolved issues related to the oceans and the marine environment, this book presents the developments made in marine science and policy since the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and implications for the sustainable management of ocean areas and resources. This comprehensive volume also provides a number of scientific, policy, and legal tools to address such issues, and to ensure better science-based management of the oceans. Topics covered include the impacts of human-induced climate change on the oceans, the marine genetic resources debate, the current legal framework for the oceans, and a comparative study of the legal issues associated with outer space. Including practical examples and worldwide case studies, this book is a valuable resource for policy makers, students and academics, in marine science and policy, ocean affairs, and the law of the sea.

Sustainable Maritime Transportation and Exploitation of Sea Resources covers the most updated aspects of maritime transports and of coastal and sea resources exploitation, with a focus on (but not limited to) the Mediterranean area. Vessels for transportation are analysed from the viewpoint of ship design in terms of hydrodynamic, structural and plant optimisation, as well as from the perspective of construction, maintenance, operation and logistics. The exploitation of marine and coastal resources is covered in terms of fishing, aquaculture and renewable energy production as well as of subsea resources extraction. The characterisation of the marine environment is seen under the twofold perspective of providing reference loads and conditions for the design of means for the resources exploitation, but also of setting limits to the design in order to preserve the natural ambient and minimise the impact of anthropogenic activities related to both transportation and exploitation. Efficiency, reliability, safety and sustainability of sea- and Mediterranean-related human activities are the focus throughout the book. Sustainable Maritime Transportation and Exploitation of Sea Resources will be of interest to technical operators in the various areas involved (shipbuilding and ship-owner companies, research organisations, universities, certifying bodies), but will also serve as an updated reference work for government agencies and other institutional and educational bodies.

  • Table. Financing mechanisms for marine conservation.
"This guide describes over 30 mechanisms for financing the conservation of marine biodiversity, both within and outside of MPAs. Its main purpose is to familiarize conservation professionals - i.e., the managers and staff of government conservation agencies, international donors, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) - with a menu of options for financing the conservation of marine and coastal biodiversity"--P. 2.
