Scientific evidence-based improvements to the defensive capabilities of coastal areas and their social implementation
The Indonesian coastline is subject to severe damage due to coastal erosion and submersion by waves and tsunamis, and this hampers the development of coastal areas. We are organizing coastal monitoring networks using the latest technology, carrying out simulations, and transferring technologies for coastal preservation utilizing sandy beaches and mangrove forests, in order to conduct scientific evidence-based improvements to the defensive capabilities of coastal areas and create approaches for their social implementation. Our aim is to create coastal communities that can achieve a balance between disaster prevention, environmental preservation, and economic development.
Disaster prevention and mitigation using green infrastructure
We will conduct standardization of the optimum natural environment-oriented coastal defense technology, combining monitoring for coastal disaster mitigation with green-gray infrastructure taking account of improvements in monitoring and modeling technology and changes over time. We will establish the technology thus developed as Indonesia’s standard technology, with the aim of extending it to other areas and encouraging its adoption in Southeast Asia and Pacific island nations.
