Globally, population growth, urbanization and sea level rise will expose an increasing number of people and assets to coastal flooding. Traditionally, governments tend to protect river basins and coastlines against flooding and erosion using man-made structures such as levees, breakwaters and revetments.

These traditional solutions seem generally cost-effective but are permanently altering the system in negative ways that reduce resilience and limit future adaptation possibilities. Nowadays, Nature-based Solutions such as mangroves and marshes, are considered as sustainable and cost-effective alternatives.
