ISSUE THEME:   Building Local Governance, Regional Excellence, and Global Leadership for Sustainable Coastal Communities and Ecosystems

ISSUE EDITOR: Elin Torell, Brian Crawford and Richard Volk

The articles in this Basins and Coasts special issue summarize the experience and lessons learned from the first five years of the Sustainable Coastal Communities and Ecosystems Program implemented by the Coastal Resources Center at the University of Rhode Island in partnership with the University of Hawaii Hilo and regional and local partners. Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development with matching contributions from implementing partners, the Program provides global leadership in integrated coastal management in biologically significant areas through a participatory, issue-driven and results-oriented process that promotes the sustainable use of marine resources and conservation of marine biodiversity while addressing critical life issues such as food and income security. Equally important, the Program seeks to improve governance in the places it works in order to build the adaptive capacity and resiliency of the people and the place. The following articles provide examples of this multi-pronged approach to improving both our physical and human environments.
