This book provides a timely analysis of the role that information--particularly scientific information--plays in the policy-making and decision-making processes in coastal and ocean management. It includes contributions from global experts in marine environmental science, marine policy, fisheries, public policy and administration, resource management, risk management, and information management.

The book is divided into four sections that provide focused analyses, including

  • An overview of the characteristics of the science-policy interface, including a discussion of the role of scientific information in policy making and an argument that the term science-policy interface is inaccurate due to the existence of many possible interfaces
  • Descriptions of fundamental concepts and principles for understanding the role of information in effective integrated coastal and ocean management
  • National and international case studies that illustrate key factors in successful science-policy interfaces, such as awareness, communication, and use of information
  • Critical issues and future research challenges

The book also explores the different types of science-policy interfaces existing within and between different organizations, as well as the various roles that different types of non-governmental organizations play in producing and disseminating information.

Science, Information, and Policy Interface for Effective Coastal and Ocean Management presents a wealth of knowledge that enhances current best practices to achieve more effective communication and use of marine environmental information. Useful to all major groups in the policy-making process, from senior policy- and decision-makers to practitioners in coastal and ocean management, it helps to increase understanding of catalysts and barriers to communicating research findings. It also serves as a starting point for further research and progress in efficient marine environment management.
