THESEUS funded research in Nature

Nature published a paper by Stijn Temmerman and coauthored by THESEUS partner Tjeerd Bouma (NIOZ) promoting the implementation of ecosystem based coastal protection systems.
Temmerman et al. argue that flood protection by ecosystem creation and restoration can provide a more sustainable, cost-effective and ecologically sound alternative to conventional coastal engineering and that, in suitable locations, it should be implemented globally and on a large scale.
