Ellison, JC, Beach ecosystem based adaptation trials, North Tarawa, Kiribati, Environment and Conservation Division, Kiribati, pp. 1-26. (2014) [Government or Industry Research]


Beaches have many values to Pacific island communities, including the protection of land from marine processes, but in some locations are degraded and eroding. Ecosystem based adaptation of beaches using low cost techniques to reduce and repair erosion has been successfully trialled in Europe and Australia, and this project undertook similar adaptation trials in North Tarawa, Kiribati.
