Coastal Institute Asia is an intensive three-week program for coastal

Technology's (AIT) Bangkok Campus. The Coastal Resources Center at the 
University of Rhode Island has been offering this course biannually since 
1992 and now has over 200 alumni working in 60 countries. The program

implement, and learn from integrated coastal management (ICM) programs and
