National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management
The National Centre for Sustainable Coastal Management (NCSCM) was established in 2011 as a research institute to support the conservation, protection, restoration, and management of Indian coasts. Its vision is to promote sustainable coasts through increased partnerships, conservation practices, scientific research, and knowledge management for the benefit and well-being of current and future generations. Recently, the first General Body Meeting of NCSCM was held to review its progress and plan for the future.
NCSCM’s Mission and Objectives
NCSCM’s mission is to provide integrated coastal zone management solutions to address the challenges faced by coastal ecosystems, habitats, and communities. The NCSCM collaborates with national and international organizations to develop and implement research-based solutions that promote sustainable coastal management practices.
One of the primary objectives of NCSCM is to develop and implement a national framework for sustainable coastal management. This framework will guide the development of policies, strategies, and programs that promote sustainable coastal management practices. It will also provide a basis for monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of these practices.
NCSCM’s Role in Coastal Ecosystem Management
Coastal ecosystems are vital for the health and well-being of people and the environment. They provide essential services, such as food, water, and climate regulation. However, they are under threat from a variety of human activities, including coastal development, pollution, and overfishing. NCSCM plays a crucial role in the management of coastal ecosystems through its research, monitoring, and assessment activities. It works with government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and local communities to develop and implement management strategies that promote the sustainable use of coastal resources.
NCSCM’s Role in Mangrove Conservation
Mangroves are an essential coastal ecosystem that provides a range of ecosystem services, such as carbon sequestration, erosion control, and habitat for a variety of species. However, mangroves are under threat from a variety of human activities, such as coastal development, overexploitation, and climate change. NCSCM plays a crucial role in mangrove conservation through its research, monitoring, and assessment activities. It works with government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and local communities to develop and implement management strategies that promote the sustainable use of mangrove resources.
