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
Funding: $174,548
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.
