The long term strategy is to implement proper coastal zone management policies by according due consideration to the consequences of coastal erosion in the planning and implementation of projects in the coastal zone. This is achieved. coastal responses to various prevention techniques. One of the most important uses of GIS and remote sensing is the production of vulnerability maps. Especially important for coastal managers and planners, these maps show potential land inundation by sea level rise and/or coastal Size: KB.
