Coastal Governance

Coastal regions provide multiple and important benefits to society. Often, these benefits are sustained over time through the active and passive management of coasts and coastal infrastructures. These may be ‘hard’ infrastructure such as concrete dikes that should provide protection against floods. However, it may also refer to ‘soft’ or ‘natural’ infrastructure such as dune areas or mangrove areas, which combine flood protection with contributions to biodiversity or recreation. Whatever their character, these infrastructures are shaped by the (in)action of human society over time. more
