#47-ECOSUD: Estuaries & Coastal Areas: Basis and Tools for a More

         Sustainable Development (2007) [Sánchez-Arcilla, Siena, & Mösso]



-ECOSUD, an acroymn describing ecosystems and sustainable development, is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment, so that these needs can be met not only in the present day, but also for future generations. Sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the social challenges facing humanity. Of the 32 largest cities in the world, 22 are located either along estuaries or the coast; for example, New York City is located at the orifice of the Hudson River estuary. This JCR Special Issue takes an in-depth look at the tools necessary to maintain environmental sustainability when ecosystem functions are systematically decaying.
