GlobalBy V. Hoon, P. Townsley  |  2018

In this addendum to the GCRMN SocMon Manual, the relevance and implications of some of the most important of these approaches for socioeconomic assessment of coral reefs and other coastal resources are discussed. It is impossible to specifically mention all the new approaches that have been developed over the past 20 years, but attention is given to one of the most influential approaches that coastal management practitioners are likely to encounter in their work – the Sustainable Livelihoods Approach (SLA) and by extension the Sustainable Livelihoods Enhancement and Diversification (SLED) approach.
