Coral reefs around the world are facing rapid degradation caused by the impacts of climate change and growing pressures from coastal communities. In recent years, the topic has gained more attention and this has led to the implementation of coastal management programs. However, the question remains open whether these Initiatives are able to reverse the rapid decline of the reef.

In this book, the dynamics of coral reef growth and decline are explained by using a comprehensible simulation model. This model helps readers to better understand the interrelationships between the ecological environment and the human developments around the reef. Through a case study on coral reefs in the Philippines, the book helps policy makers to evaluate the effectiveness of current coastal management programs.
