Project outputs include Fangchenggang coastal protection and upgrading. The project will build (a) 9.2 km of coastal dykes, (b) a 2.5-hectare (ha) public education square for mangrove protection, and (c) related auxiliary facilities. An important design feature of the Project is the incorporation of climate resilience by enlarging the zone between the coastline and the dike to buffer sea-level rise. The buffer zone will be used as a coastal park for local residents. In addition, public education facilities will be established in the coastal park to raise awareness about mangrove protection. Lastly, biological measures with trees and grasses for bank reinforcement have been adopted.
