Natural and Social Capital can be mutually supportive

In addition to bringing together conservation and development objectives, the ecosystem services perspective has the potential to create a link between human activities as they benefit from, or impact on, marine and coastal ecosystems. As such, marine and coastal ecosystem services can support the integration of sectorial policy processes and governance frameworks, the segregation of which can impede effective, goal-oriented management. An arrangement that accounts for these relationships and is able to effectively guide the coordination and alignment of development goals, objectives and related governance and management mechanisms in the marine and coastal environment will help policy-makers ensure the benefits from healthy marine and coastal ecosystems can support sustainable development.
