Coastal protection

Protecting shorelines and coastal areas through solutions that prevent erosion and flooding caused by climate change

Rising sea levels and more frequent storm surges increase the threat of coastline erosion and flooding. As sea levels rise and weather patterns change, so does the need for protecting shorelines and coastal areas. Modelling and forecasting can provide a strong basis for this along with solutions to prevent erosion, including shore nourishment, breakwaters, cliff and slope defences, groynes and sand dunes and solutions to prevent flooding due to rising sea levels, including dikes and mobile or permanent quay walls. Being a flat country with a 7,300 km long coastline, Denmark has had a national interest in building expertise within risk assessment of sea and inlet flooding caused by climate change.

We invite you to explore solutions related to coastal protection in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how coastal protection solutions can help solve your environmental challenges.
