Abstract
    Coastal and marine environments play many different roles in relation to public health, food security, economic and social benefits, cultural values and traditional livelihoods. The state of these environments is mirrored by activities carried out on land. Activities varying from industrial and agricultural production to daily domestic routines affect the health of these ecosystems and of the people that depend on them. This revision of the NPA Handbook (renamed “Protecting Coastal and Marine Environments from Land-based Activities: A Guide for National Action”), hopes to facilitate action that will actually protect our coastal and marine environments.
