The Human Wellbeing and Coastal Resilience Network is brought together by a common concern over the growing vulnerability of coastal people and the ecosystem services on which they depend. The network aims to connect, and support, activities that work towards improved governance for human wellbeing and coastal resilience worldwide. In doing so, we strive for enhanced collective learning and debate across different scientific disciplines, geographical scales, and coastal contexts, which can inform coastal governance and policy processes. Our members span academic, civil society, consultancy, and policy making sectors from across the globe.

This whole initiative has been brought back to life, as we share the same desire as previously raised by the original creator. Our Seas are becoming polluted and the research and environmental reports are being ignored by some world leaders. We want to help make a difference and want as many people to learn about these important issues.
