This record shows a track plot map undertaken during the Betio Mole Extension Survey in Kiribati in 1981. It was part of the Tarawa Nearshore Project that was under the work programe element of CCOP/SOPAC CCSP-1/KI.4 (Surveys for Landfill/Construction Materials) and CCSP-1/KI.5 (Coastal Zone Surveys on Sedimentation, Erosion and Pollution Problems). There are another 9 accompanying sheets that are linked to this map belonging to the same project.

Documenting ways of increasing the resilience of beaches to erosion, including the use of re-vegetation. A key objective is developing low cost methods that allow reduction of direct impacts that contribute to beach erosion, enabling natural processes of sand accretion and stabilization to operate effectively.

Beach ecosystem based adaptation (EbA) can increase resilience of beaches to storms and sea level rise, using access control fencing and gateways, beach vegetation replanting and use of brush matting to protect beach erosion scarps from direct wave action. This report is the result of a project that applied EbA methods at seven eroding beaches on Abaiang, all located on community land, in demonstrations involving all of the ten villages on the main island.
