Coastal areas are commonly defined as the interface or transition areas between land and sea, including large inland lakes. Overall, about 50-70 % of the global population live within 100 km of the coastline covering only about 4 % of earth’s land, thereby drawing heavily on coastal and marine habitats for food, building sites, transportation, recreational areas, and waste disposal. The people of these zones depend mainly on low productive agriculture due to several constraints such as prolonged water logging and drainage congestion in predominantly low-lying areas with heavy soils during the wet season, preponderance of saline and acid sulphate soils, scarcity of good quality irrigation water particularly in the dry season, seawater intrusion into adjoining lands, and water pollution due to eutrophication and others affecting the aquatic habitats, etc. Carbon sequestration in coastal areas, such as, marshes, lagoons, etc. have significant influence on soil quality and carbon pool in soils and their impacts on the environment. Over and above these, the coastal areas are prone to disasters due to climate change leading to colossal loss of lives and properties in majority areas. Forestry and mangrove dynamics, in particular, because of its dwindling nature with time, are also subjects of interest affecting the ecology of the coastal zones requiring appropriate attention. The international symposium held in this context on ‘Transforming coastal zones for sustainable food and income security’ in virtual mode in March, 2021 offered scope to present and discuss various thematic areas by eminent scientists from all over the world. The proceedings of selected papers presented reflect cross-sectoral views of the areas highlighting, wherever necessary, fusion of technologies, with the ultimate target to suggest livelihood security and sustainable development for the sensitive coastal zones. The book is aimed to share the knowledge with researchers, academicians, and various other stakeholders for addressing the complex problems of coastal regions, production constraints, social, economical, technical and environmental issues and draw out strategies for resilient agricultural technologies and improving livelihood security in coastal agro-ecosystems.
