Coastal erosion has occurred with increasing frequency and complexity across the entire coastal area of Vietnam with different scopes in each region and location varies depending on geological structure, coastal processes, and human activities.
Efficient coastal erosion prevention and control requires the implementation of measures in a coordinated and comprehensive manner, from the macro to the micro level, both directly and indirectly, and includes both structural and nonstructural measures to suit each location.
Vietnam should also quickly establish dikes and embankments protection plans for each specific coastal segment and also invest in research for the application of modern erosion prevention measures
It is necessary to establish a periodic monitoring system on coastal erosion and accretion so that information can be disseminated promptly to the population through the GIS system, establishing a network between the management agencies with the scientific research institutions and the communities.
