Definition of Coast protection:
Measures aimed at protecting the coast against coastline retreat, thus protecting housing, infrastructure, the coast and the hinterland from erosion often at the expense of losing the beach and the dynamic coastal landscape. Coast protection often consists of hard structures such as revetments or groynes[1].
This is the common definition for Coast protection, other definitions can be discussed in the article

Notes
