"To facilitate and coordinate the implementation of applied geoscience programmes in East and Southeast Asia in order to contribute to economic development and an improved quality of life within the region."

CCOP Book Project on Coastal Erosion & Mitigation in Asian Counties

Duration:  2020-2022

Funding Source:      Qingdao Institute of Marine Geology, China Geological Survey

Project Summary / Brief Description

The coastal zone is located in the intersecting zone of land and ocean, which has important ecological value, but it is also a fragile area of ecological environment. Under the influence of ocean power and human activities, it is easy to cause the imbalance of coastal sediment budget, leading to coastal erosion. Almost all types of coasts are threatened by coastal erosion, such as rocky coast, silty and muddy coast, sandy coast, coral reef, mangrove and other biological coasts. Coastal erosion has been one of the long-term problems in East and Southeast Asian countries in recent decades. In order to better understand general coastal erosion situation and provide the geological basis for social economic sustainable development in CCOP countries, based on the project of “China-ASEAN cooperation on Marine geoscience research and disaster reduction and mitigation” of China, we put forward the cooperation of compiling the CCOP book to review the research results of coastal erosion, coastal prevention and mitigation of CCOP member countries.

Goals/Objectives

To better understand general coastal erosion situation and provide the geological basis for social economic sustainable development in CCOP countries, based on the project of “China-ASEAN cooperation on Marine geoscience research and disaster reduction and mitigation” of China, we put forward the cooperation of compiling the CCOP book to review the research results of coastal erosion, coastal prevention and mitigation of CCOP member countries.

Scope

CGS has proposed this Book Project to review the current results of coastal erosion, prevention and mitigation of the CCOP Member Countries. The book content will include three parts: the introduction, Member Country reports; and Conclusion. Each of the country report will cover:

Chapter content of each country

  • Introduction: Geography background of coasts (coastal geology and morphology, hydrodynamics, land use change, etc. )
  • Coastal erosion
  • Review of coastal erosion (Coastal erosion history, current situation and causes, etc)
  • Selected case studies of coastal erosion
  • Coastal protection and adaptive management
  • Review of coastal Protection (effective methods for coastal defense and nourishment)
  • Selected practice cases introduction of coastal protection
  • National coastal management strategy
  • Acknowledgements

Outcome

The Online Kick-off Meeting of the CCOP Book Project on Coastal Erosion & Mitigation in Asian Countries held on Thursday 22 July 2021, 13:30-15:00 (Bangkok Time) hosted by COOPTS and Qingdao Institute of Marine Geoscience, CGS. The project has been approved at the 76th CCOP Steering Committee Meeting held on 7 July 2021. The meeting was very successful in reaching important consensus among participants of MCs for our further cooperation. It was attended by 34 participants from Brunei Darussalam, China, Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and the Technical Secretariat. In the meeting, participants discussed work plan for book project and agreed the proposed book compilation schedule.

The book will be published in English. The printing will be done in China. CGS will support the publishing of the book with its budget amount $30,000. The book must be published by the end of June 2022.
