Proceedings of the Jakarta Workshop on Coastal Resources Management
Edited by Eric C.F. Bird and Aprilani Soegiarto

The collected papers that comprise these proceedings were presented at the September 1979 workshop which inaugurated the UNU training course on coastal resource management. Relating primarily to the north coast of Java, they provide a multi-faceted and up-to-date discussion of various coastal resources such as mangroves and marine fisheries, as well as more general papers on model development, humid tropical deltas, water-quality assessments, and socio-economic studies. In most cases the authors analyse the implications o their work for coastal resources management.

Spatial Analysis for Regional Development: A Case Study in the Bicol River Basin of the Philippines

by Dennis A. Rondinelli

This case study in the Philippines explains how a variety of scientific techniques were selected and used to analyse the spatial linkages within the Bicol River Basin, and to describe the inequalities in services, income, and opportunities within the region. Valuable insights are then provided as to how development projects, by incorporating such information, could be designed to discourage the massive urban migration and increasing inequality that consistently accompany development efforts.

Environmental Changes on the Coasts of Indonesia by Eric C. F. Bird and Otto S. R. Ongkosongo With 14,700 islands and 60,000 kilometres of coastline Indonesia presents a tremendous diversity of coastal features. I n this monograph the two authors draw together previously published work and their own observations to provide an overview of the Indonesian coastline and the tectonic, volcanic, hydrographic, and organic processes at work. Emphasis is given to areas of most rapid change-primarily deltas and mangroves-and the effect of man, and the study concludes with recommendations for future research.
