Traditional forms of coastal protection such as sand barriers, dikes and dams are being questioned due to their high maintenance costs, limited flexibility and negative ecological impact. Therefore natural alternatives are being tested, which work with nature instead of against it.

Coastal protection must ensure adequate defenses against the sea while taking into account climate change and rising sea levels.
