      The land ward displacement of the shoreline caused by the forces of waves and currents is termed as Coastal Erosion. The Coastal areas have become more prone and vulnerable to natural and human made hazards which lead to Coastal Erosion. The Shoreline retreat is recognized as a burgeoning threat because of global climate change and other anthropogenic Cited by: 2. coastal systems as buffers will increase in the coming decades. Valuation of indirect ecosystem services, such as the regulating role of coastal and marine resources in providing habitat for fish, as a receptor for wastewater, or to control beach erosion, is weak.

      coastal erosion along the coastline of Tanzania and the Zanzibar Islands. In Tanzania much of the mining occurs along riverbanks, while in Zanzibar it occurs along the coasts, though both processes contribute greatly to coastal erosion (Masalu, & Nyandwi, ). Human. Beach farming in Zanzibar that has been leading to serious coastal erosion has been halted as climate change is causing seawater levels to rise increasing salt .

      There are 3 main groups of coastal features which result from coastal erosion: 1. Headlands and Bays 2. Caves, Arches, Stacks and Sumps 3. Cliffs and Wave-cut platforms. 1. Headlands and Bays. Headlands are resistant outcrops of rock sticking out into the sea, whilst bays are indents in the coastline between two headlands. These trees are crucial to Zanzibar as they protect the island from coastal erosion Going for a massage or Jacuzzi at the Baobab Spa is a gorgeous treat, with the picturesque setting a huge selling point Playing games is a nice lazy way to pass the time at Fumba - the hotel’s inside bar has a stock of games including dominoes and Jenga.

With the growth of population in the coastal zone, more competing pressures are being put on the shores and beaches. At present, accelerated coastal erosion due to anthropogenic pressure is prevalent. Standard defence techniques to combat erosion include hard/soft protection measures (hold/advance the.

Eastern Africa Atlas of Coastal Resources. Coastal erosion is a major environmental problem throughout West Africa, but some stretches of the coastline are more severely affected than others. In northwestern Guinea Bissau, coastal zones have eroded rapidly over the past few decades.

In Varela, the shoreline has retreated by up to m inland in the past 40 years (see inset above). Increasing population, expanding industry and commerce, and tourism are placing added pressures on an already highly-utilized coastal zone. This book, through a series of case studies, illustrates the variety of changes already made along the coastlines of the world.

Managing Coastal Erosion explores major questions surrounding a national policy on coastal erosion: Should the federal government be in the business of protecting developers and individuals who build in erosion-prone coastal areas.

How should such a program be implemented. Can it prompt more responsible management of coastal areas. Coastal erosion is one of the major coastal problems currently facing Tanzania. Several factors, including sea level rise, geology, and rapid coastal population growth accompanied by rapid increase of human activities that interfere with natural processes, have been linked to the by: Case Study of Coastal Erosion - Flamborough Head and Holderness Coast Background and the Problem of Erosion - The Holderness Coast is on the NE coast of the UK, facing the North Sea.

- It extends 60km from Flamborough in the north to Spurn Point in the south. - Coastline mainly made up of cliffs (m high), made of soft, easily eroded File Size: KB. This volume synthesizes research from a five year program supported by the Norwegian Agency for Development to assess how coastal communities in Tanzania can adapt to climate change impacts such as sea level rise, and better assert their rights to implement decisions regarding coastal resource management in the context of global climate change.

Coastal erosion is the loss or displacement of land, or the long-term removal of sediment and rocks along the coastline due to the action of waves, currents, tides, wind-driven water, waterborne ice, or other impacts of storms.

The landward retreat of the shoreline can measured and described over a temporal scale of tides, seasons, and other short-term cyclic processes. Coastal East Africa including Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique shares a coastline and a myriad of essential and key natural resources, forests and a variety of ecosystems which support rich biodiversity.

Unfortunately, for all its natural resources, Coastal East Africa is seen to have some of the highest rates of poverty in the world. In the online discussion, students must show that they understand coastal processes, the impact of man made structures on coastal processes, and can apply their values as they discuss what should be done, if anything, to reduce the impact of coastal erosion.

There are three main processes at work in the sea. These are erosion, transportation and deposition. What is coastal erosion. Erosion is the wearing away of the land by the sea.

This often involves destructive waves. wearing away the coast. There are five main processes which cause coastal erosion. It entwines through coral thicket vegetation, mangrove forest and across a creek.

You walk through mangrove forest which is extremely crucial to Zanzibar’s ecosystems, providing a habitat for many lizards, snakes and birdlife as well as preventing the coastal erosion.
