Coastal ecosystems support enormous natural resources which are major sources of livelihoods and income generation for a major part of the global population. With this growing dependency coupled with the continued destruction (from both global climate change and human interventions), coastal resources are facing unprecedented threats of deterioration thus limiting the valuable ecosystem services that support all sorts of human welfare. Taking Saint Martin’s Island as a case study, this paper investigates the potential vulnerabilities which persist as negative forces in managing the available coastal resources in an integrated as well as sustainable way. In addition, this paper suggests a people oriented coastal resource management framework incorporating all aspects of vulnerabilities.
