Marine Pollution and its Effect on Coastal Communities
Article by Dr. Malini V Shankar, Vice Chancellor, Indian Maritime University & Dr. Sheeja Janardhanan, Associate Professor, Indian Maritime University

While the blue economy model of a developing nation aims at human well-being through opportunities for economic growth and tackling unemployment, food security and poverty, the degradation of marine environment can do no good in realizing these aims. For reaping the fruits of the blue economy, we need to sow the seeds of healthy and safe marine environment and resilient coastlines.
