This Ocean & Coastal Management special issue “Coastal Systems in
Transition” has its origin in the eponymous ECSA 56 conference in
Bremen (Germany) in 2016. There was a subtitle for the conference:
“From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state”, which indicates
that humans play an increasingly important role for Estuarine
and Coastal Sciences. The explanatory text of the conference states:
“Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change
dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems
driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials
and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods
of the population.” This two-sided coin is central to this special issue:
We are the only ones who can change, and for example through effective
governance induce change in others, to reduce pressure on
coastal ecosystems. Apart from that, we also have to think about how to
respond to altered types and availability of resources and ecosystem
