Title: The Application of Conservation Economics on Coastal Resources
Authors: Khil, John
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Recently there has been widespread interest in and concern over coastal land and marine communities in providing natural resources under growing demand pressures with increases in population, income, mobility, and leisure time. This is because conflicts over the “who, when, and how” of use are arising with greater frequency. This has resulted in the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, with which Congress has encouraged water interface states to establish programs for managing its coastal areas. Hawaii has completed its management program. It is no the intention of this paper to make economic analysis and inventory of specific coastal conflicts nor to evaluate the adequacy of the program’s management structure and economic tools towards achieving stated goals. An attempt, however, is made in the first chapter to give economic meaning to the general nature of conflicts through the use of resource conservation economics as developed by Ciriacy-Wantrup. In other words, to interpret the problems associated with the coastal zone resources using an economic rationale. The multi-faceted meaning of conservation will be defined and confined to its economic meaning and implications, in the explanation of coastal problems.
