Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Coastal Zone '91
Coastal erosion has been a worldwide problem of primary concern to coastal management and development. To arrest the coastal erosion processes along the coastline of developing countries is economically very difficult. Coastal erosion protection methods are available in the literature and have been used successfully in many developed countries. These are: seawalls, revetments, embankments, groins, breakwaters etc. However, the above approaches are too expensive for developing countries. This paper presents approaches which could be used for management of coastline in developing countries.
