The study of the non-engineering measures on the coastal protection in taiwan
Author : WEI-PO HUANG(1), LIEN-KWEI CHIEN(2) & YEN HSUAN TSAO(3)
ABSTRACT
In this study, the protection level assessment principles and protection standards for the coastal areas in Taiwan were
developed. Based on the environmental characteristics of each coastal segment, risk level analysis was adopted to
designate the protection level of each segment for providing references for the development of disaster prevention
management. In addition, to verify the proposed assessment principles for coastal protection levels and the protection
standards, and to consider various coastal characteristics and disaster types from a comprehensive perspective, this
study analyzed the case of the Yunlin coastal area for providing references for the use of other coastal segments. The
non-engineering measures were also proposed for integrating coastal protection.
