Sri Lanka Coast Conservation Department

Coastal regions are home to a large and growing population in Sri Lanka. The high concentration of population have produced many economic benefits from the coastal resources, in particular from fishing, tourism, and maritime activities, while having improved transportation links, developed industrial and urban centers, and modified physical nature in the coastal zone. Eventually the increasing beneficiaries cause for degrading the Natural Coastal Environment. Hence engineering and management of the coastal zones is vital for the sustainability of coastal resources.
