Short summary
Tropical cyclones and sea level rise cause major problems including damage to infrastructure in coastal areas. A green infrastructure for coastal protection will be needed by small island nations. A maintaining reef growth in the future is effective in reducing the risk of coastal damage arising from wave action. The use of coral reefs for disaster risk reduction is a cost-effective approach and includes other benefits derived from the various ecological services provided by living reefs.
