In an effort to facilitate the transition of coastal regions towards sustainable development, the FEC 'Just Transitions' Sub-Working Group hosted an event focusing on community-based coastal hazard risk reduction and climate resilient development. The event was hosted in two different time slots on 23 and 24 October (UTC) to facilitate global participation. Aligned with FEC's theme of 'Pathways to Coastal Sustainability,' the event aimed to empower coastal communities and governing bodies in selecting credible and legitimate pathways for just, resilient, and sustainable coastal development.


Coastal communities, grappling with rising sea levels, biodiversity loss, and multifaceted challenges in public health, food, energy, and water security due to climate change, are accentuating the urgency of readiness in an uncertain future, underlining the crucial need for proactive preparation. The webinar delved into the multifaceted challenges associated with coastal hazard risk reduction and climate resilient development. It provided a platform for in-depth discussions about the barriers and enablers of just transitions in the context of coastal communities.

2nd International Mega–Delta Meeting

River deltas are critical coastal habitats. However, they are facing continuous threats such as increased erosion, flooding risk, and shrinking salt marshes and mangroves. This has become a global problem which requires international cooperation to find solutions. The Mega-Delta Programme was listed as one of the first round of the actions endorsed under the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. It aims to provide solutions to the problems faced by different types of deltas in different regions with different levels of social-economic development. All the deltas are faced with challenges caused by climate change and human activities. Thus, combined efforts from different organizations and multi-disciplines are required to fulfil the task.


The theme of this meeting is 'Mega deltas - seeking solutions to the problem of sustainability', during which, we will discuss about protection and restoration of ecosystems and biodiversity; community resilience to ocean hazards; and skills, knowledge and technology for all.

The Second Marine Social Ecological System Symposium 2024

Managing for sustainable use of the Earth's marine and coastal systems.

The challenge in supporting enhanced and sustainable uses of the marine domain is to enable current and future growth in the blue economy, and the associated development of coastal livelihoods, while equally supporting sustainable social, economic and environmental outcomes. This challenge explicitly involves managing human impacts on the earth's marine and coastal systems, and managing the feedback of these impacts on coastal communities, industries, stakeholders, and society in general. To fully address this topic, an evaluation of marine socio-ecological systems is warranted. Exploration of tools to specifically evaluate these socio-ecological systems is needed, timely, and has not yet systematically been done.

This Symposium was initially organized in May 2020 but had been postponed from the original date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now we are pleased to announce that it is rescheduled as MSEAS-2024 to be held for June 3-7, 2024, in Yokohama, Japan.

Geomorphology Calls for Papers

Coastal wetlands are vital component of coastal geomorphology, impacted by hydrodynamics and diverse ecosystems that serve as essential buffers between land and sea. The coast provides valuable services for human development, via study of coastal protection, carbon storage, habitat support for wildlife, and fisheries enhancement. 

Over the past decades, researchers have increasingly recognized the crucial role of coastal wetlands in various morphological processes and their interactions with surrounding environments. The processes, interactions, and evolutions of coastal wetlands have become a significant focus of research due to their vulnerability to environmental changes, including sea level rise, climate change, and human activities. Understanding the intricate connections and feedback mechanisms within these ecosystems becomes urgent for effective environmental conservation and sustainable management.

In recent years, there has been a growing scientific interest in the processes, interactions and evolutions of coastal wetlands, both from fundamental (e.g., sedimentation and geomorphology) and practical perspectives (e.g., in the management of coastal wetlands). With the growing interesting on coastal wetlands in various research contexts, we propose to organize a SI with the theme of "Coastal wetlands: processes, interactions, and evolutions" to gather a coherent set of high-quality research papers dedicated to this rising topic and to be shared with relevant communities.

Assessment of Ecosystem-Based Disaster Risk Reduction Strategies in Coastal Environments of Taiwan

van Onselen, V., Bayrak, M. M., & Lin, T. Y.

Viola van Onselen


Taiwan’s rapid economic and industrial growth has put enormous pressure on its natural environment. This is especially visible in the coastal zone, where risks such as sea-level rise, coastal erosion, land subsidence, and flooding threaten the already vulnerable ecosystems. Ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR) is a management strategy that uses ecosystems to reduce disaster risks. While this type of strategy is promoted in the ‘Taiwan Coastal Zone Management Act’ (TCZMA), there is still a lack of data on the implementation of Eco-DRR methods in Taiwan. This study examines papers on policy analyses of the TCZMA, and five main barriers for implementation of Eco-DRR in Taiwan are identified. Subsequently, in order to assess Eco-DRR strategies in the coastal zone of Taiwan, case studies and evaluation data on ecosystem-based management strategies were assembled and evaluated. The results of this study show that initial strategies to plant mangroves for reduction of wave energy have not always been successful; in certain areas they were removed again due to invasiveness in endemic wetland ecosystems. Moreover, artificially building sand dunes can have negative side effects, like oversteepening of the dune profile or deteriorating the natural dune dynamics. To address and tackle aforementioned challenges, a novel framework is introduced for improved uptake of Eco-DRR in Taiwan and beyond, and suggestions for future strategies are proposed.

These were some key take away messages from the conference that Viola van Onselen would like to share with us.


  • Go beyond conservation efforts to restore nature and increase biodiversity; also focus on sustainable production and consumption.

  • Recognize that effective conservation is not solely a matter of quantity but also focus on the quality of the protected areas and their management.

  • More enforcement is needed to ensure that protected areas fulfill their intended conservation and environmental protection goals, and that they continue to benefit biodiversity, ecosystem services, and the well-being of local communities.  

  • To meet the 30 by 30 goals international cooperation, policy changes, and innovative conservation strategies are required.

  • Balancing conservation with the needs of local communities leads to more effective, sustainable, and equitable conservation efforts.
