A leading seaport since the 14th century, Cochin is the coastal city of Kerala with multi-cultural population. Being a dynamic coastal region, city’s coastal area is prone to erosion and depositioncoast3 at different locations.

Many studies indicate that a major stretch of Kerala’s coast line is eroding.

The coastal areas of this city are experiencing intense and sustained environment pressures from  a range of driving forces which have been increasing in their intensity over the decades.

 As a result, there is an unprecedented coastal erosion and deposition taking place from the coastal area of Cochin. coast2The c-hed is working on a project to identify the reasons for these phenomena, to come up with remedial measures.
