Coastal vegetation acts as a natural barrier against extreme natural and anthropogenic activities, protecting infrastructure and human lives. Establishment of hard infrastructure for tsunami protection is not feasible in developing countries due to its cost-intensive nature. Coastal vegetation can therefore be a feasible alternative for tsunami and general coastal protection in developing countries. This study investigates the effectiveness of current coastal vegetation projects and reports a… Expand
