Coastal Management

Studies have indicated that erosion is dominant in all the nine coastal districts of Kerala.

Sustainable management of the coastline depends largely on the effective use of hard or soft engineering options to curb the physical processes impacting on the coast, such as erosion and long shore drift.

Successful shoreline management also depends on understanding the different uses of coastal land, the various interest groups involved and their management.
