SEA BANK AND RIVER BANK PROTECTION

The Problem:  With effect from activation of the southwest monsoonal wind, there rises the cry of coastal fisheries communities for their houses being washed off by the sea.  This is a natural happening and a land of about 3-4 square kilometers from the island is annually claimed by the sea.

The reservation of 100 meters from the water periphery is just a measure of saving lives and properties of the coastal communities but the land is so simply neglected to be washed off.
