Scope As per the United Nations estimates, the world population reached 7.3billion as of mid 2015, implying that world has added approximately one billion people in the span of the last 12 years.The total population on earth is predicted to increase by more than one billion people within the next 15 years, reaching 8.5 billion in 2030, and to increase further to 9.7 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion by 2100. Looking at the ever increasing urbanization, in 2016, an estimated 54.5 percent of the global populations inhabited along in urban region specially along coastal region. By next decade urban areas are projected to shelter sixty percent of people worldwide. On the basis of these figures and other global trends, it would appear that Africa and Asia will have the highest share of global urban growth in next twenty five years,resulting consideration rise of several metropolitan cities and towns along coastal region of Asia Pacific and Africa. Therefore the task of transformation through environmental sustainability and building disaster resilient societies creating organizational,operational and financial management problems in urban environmental system as well as coastal ecosystem will be vital.This session deals with subjects involved in conclave of issues related to transformation towards disaster resilient societies through sustainable use of marine and coastal ecosystems for better governance in coastal zone.The session focuses on issues related to policy formulation for planning for building climate resilient societies ,coastal risk and vulnerability,social ecological vulnerability and disaster resilience in coastal communities,Ocean Governance,Human Pressures on Coastal Environments,land water seawater interactions.
