In practice, environmental management measures target driver-specific pressures to reduce the risk of environmental effects and subsequent impacts on vulnerable ecosystems and environmental services. Particularly in the marine environment, the coastal zone is influenced by many drivers occurring within a very dynamic ecosystem, integrating land-based and marine influences. Already managed by a complex jurisdictional framework, each of these pressures can cause environmental effects individually or in combination with pressures.....
