Nearly half of the world’s population lives within 200 km of the coastline and depends on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods. The future of coastal and marine ecosystem resilience will ultimately rest in the long-term maintenance of ecologically viable space and natural resource provisioning to human populations.
