The Department of Science and Technology and the Mariano Marcos State University–Main Campus (MMSU) launched on Thursday, January 19, the Philippines’ first Coastal Engineering and Management R&D Center (COASTER).
The Research Center is housed in MMSU, Batac, Ilocos Norte in partnership with the Kyoto University of Japan, the University of the Philippines Marine Science Institute, Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University, and other HEIs in Region 1.
The coastal engineering program will aid in developing innovations to combat coastal erosion, a prototype of coastal flood control infrastructure, a data book of flood control structures, and a coastal engineering design and guidelines handbook to promote coastal resilience.
These projects aim to protect resources and coastal communities from coastal erosion and flooding through the effective implementation of S&T-based coastal management.
