From grey to green: nature-based solutions for coastal protection (3061)
National Centre for Coasts and Climate, The University of Melbourne
Project duration: 2017-2020
Location: Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula
This project will look at innovative ways to protect the coastline by developing a living breakwater which is a step away from the traditional engineered seawalls and breakwaters. This will involve the rehabilitation and planting of dunes to stabilise these against storms and rising sea levels.
