    I don't understand the difference between a sustainable approach and a holistic approach to coastal management plans.


    We are currently doing about coastal management and my teacher said there are four types: hard engineering, soft engineering, sustainable management plans, and holistic management plans.
    However, I just cannot understand the difference between sustainable management plans and holistic management plans. I get that holistic covers the whole coastline, whereas sustainable management plans may only cover a certain area that is being eroded. Are there any other differences?

    I also saw something that said holistic involved all players, but isn't sustainable something that considers social, environmental and economical impacts too? Can you explain this to me please, I really don't get it.

    Thank you, any help would be greatly appreciated.
