Guidelines for preparation of DPR for Coastal Management Projects under climate change scenario

This publication brings out broad guidelines for coastal protection projects. Coastal protection project planning and design being an interdisciplinary task, needs inputs from coastal, geotechnical, hydrology, hydraulics, structural, meteorology, economics, environmental, geology, oceanography and other related disciplines. A systematic and integral approach for planning and developing optimum solutions to the problems of coastal erosion is necessary. This publication aims to provide additional direction to the coastal engineers to design schemes for coastal protection and management in a climate change scenario. This document provides the holistic approach to address the manifold social, economic, management, scientific, engineering and environmental dimensions required to protect the Indian coastline and to mitigate climate induced impacts.
