Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology Republic of Indonesia, Regional Technical Workshop, 28-31 August 2006, Khaolak, Thailand Coastal Protection in the aftermath of the Indian Ocean tsunami: What role of coastal forest and trees?

In conclusions:
• The trees control erosion and stabilize the littoral by holding sediments
and building up land
• A green belt of trees will effectively reduce the force of devastating storm
surges and waves that accompany cyclones and also tsunamis.
• It will provide an amenity and a source of food and materials for coastal
community
• Beneficial to biodiversity and can create habitat corridors for wildlife.
