What are the four coastal management options?

Their four key options for shoreline management are:

  • Hold the line: intervene against coastal erosion with hard or soft engineering to prevent any further shoreline retreat.
  • Managed retreat: realignment of the coast to a pre-determined line some distance further inland from the current position of the coast (see above)
  • What does the coastal management Act do?

    to prohibit incineration at sea; to control dumping at sea, pollution in the coastal zone, inappropriate development of the coastal environment and other adverse effects on the coastal environment; to give effect to South Africa’s international obligations in relation to coastal matters; and.

    Who protects the coastline?

    Most erosion is caused by loss of (1) the protective function of the coastal habitat, especially coral reefs (where they are found) that protect the coast from wave action; and (2) coastal trees that protect the coast from strong winds.

    What are the issues that could be addressed by coastal management?

    Major Coastal Environmental Issues

    • eutrophication,
    • habitat modification,
    • hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption,
    • exploitation of resources,
    • toxic effects,
    • introduction of nonindigenous species,

    What are the two main types of coastal management?

    There are two types of coastal management, hard engineering, which involves building structures to protect the coast. Or soft engineering, which works with nature, using natural materials, or allowing nature to take back areas.

    How do revetments work?

    Revetments are sloping structures built on embankments or shorelines, along the base of cliffs, or in front of sea walls to absorb and dissipate the energy of waves in order to reduce coastal erosion.

    What is the Integrated Coastal Management Act?

    To establish a system of integrated coastal and estuarine management in the Republic, including norms, standards and policies, in order to promote the conservation of the. coastal environment, and maintain the natural attributes of coastal landscapes and.

    Which environmental health matter does the Coastal Management Act protects?

    This Act provides for the conservation and management of the marine ecosystem, the long-term sustainable utilisation of marine living resources and equitable access to exploitation, utilisation and protection of certain marine living resources.

    What is a coastal management scheme?

    Coastal management is defence against flooding and erosion, and techniques that stop erosion to claim lands. Protection against rising sea levels in the 21st century is crucial, as sea level rise accelerates due to climate change.

    What are the four government agencies that have mandates in managing coastal and/or marine areas?

    The DENR and ICM As mandated by E.O. No. 533, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and Municipal Development Fund Office (MDFO) have implemented the Integrated Coastal Resources Management Project (ICRMP) from July 2007 to June 2013.
