The land and the sea are interconnected. Changes originating on land impact on the health of the seas, whose condition in turn bears on terrestrial ecosystems and on human well-being. Increasing anthropogenic activities in coasts – where land and sea interface – are intensifying these interdependencies. But the dominant governance approach, which separates responsibilities for land and sea, fails to account for land-sea interactions as an important frontier for advancing sustainability.
