This new release aims to assist coastal resource managers in dealing with the problems arriving at the coast from rivers and streams. To date, there has been no guide book for managers. The stimulus was that many coral reef managers reported on problems of sediment, nutrient, pesticide and litter pollution damaging their reefs and they did not know where to start.
This 112 page book is an ideal training manual for catchment (watershed) management capacity building. It is based on 33 case studies of best practice catchment management from 70 authors and 22 countries from Brazil to Thailand.
