natural resources. Unfortunately, it became clear from many conversations with Jamaican partners that while quite a few marine and coastal economic valuation studies have been conducted in Jamaica, few of them have had an impact on decision making.

There was. In addition, there are damages from natural causes such as: 1) outbreaks of reef destroying animals such as crown-of-thorns starfish; 2) diseases like whiteband (which kills elkhorn coral) and blackband (which kills large structural corals); 3) hurricanes that smash the coral and “sandblast” away the living tissue; 4) coral disablement and death from “bleaching” episodes; and 5) die-off or depletion of essential.

Coastal and marine habitats, particularly coral reefs and mangroves, play a crucial role in reducing the impacts of coastal erosion and inundation during storms by providing natural protection. They also benefit Measuring damages to coastal and marine natural resources book production, tourism, and in the case of mangroves, carbon sequestration.

The Importance of 1 Coastal Resource Management DAY 1 The establishment of community-based marine sanctuaries is part of a bigger process called integrated coastal management or coastal resource management (CRM). To adequately discuss the process of establishing marine sanctuaries, we have to first define CRM and understand its importance.

Since different sea areas may have different ecosystems that provide different ecosystem services, and the severity of damages to the marine ecosystems also vary by the types of ocean uses, our framework to develop the ecological compensation standard for a coastal region involves five steps ().First, the study area is divided into eco-zones according to natural conditions, key habitats.

beach erosion and damage to reefs (Cashman et al., ). Though historical changes in the quality of coastal and marine resources are difficult to measure, there is a preponderance of evidence that many aspects of marine quality are declining over time.

For. The coastal and marine environment is a major provider of goods and services, such as food, fossil fuels, construction materials, transport and recreation. It also hosts an invaluable biodiversity that forms complex ecosystems which are threatened by human activities such as agriculture, fisheries, aquaculture, shipping, urbanisation and tourism.

Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) is the process that NOAA and other trustees use to study the effects of these incidents on fish, wildlife, surrounding habitats, and public use.

How Natural Resource Damage Assessment Works. Working with federal, state, and tribal authorities, we assess and restore injured coastal and marine natural resources. There are four basic steps to this process: Assess the Injury: Quantify injuries to the environment.

OR&R works to measure these damages and protect and restore NOAA trust natural resources. Marine Debris Marine debris comes in many forms, from a cigarette butt tossed on the beach to a 4,pound tangle of derelict fishing nets caught on a coral reef.

Values from mangroves in Thailand (expressed in $ at prices) 17 The ultimate aims of defining and measuring the value of the natural environment are to better inform.

At $8 a dozen, the producer earns $7 from the sale (the selling price minus the production price), so the net ben- efit of the good to the producer is $7 (called producer sur- plus). The total economic value of a dozen oysters is thus $9 ($2 net benefit to the consumer plus $7 net benefit to the producer).

Current development trends and pressures exerted on these resources are steadily degrading the components of this fragile ecosystem. This book is about development and measuring development progress. While precise definitions may vary, development is, at heart, a process of building wealth, the produced, natural, human, and institutional capital which is the source of income and wellbeing.
