Coastal erosion continues to be a major issue in coastal zone management. Coastal erosion has been accelerated in many areas of Sri Lanka’s coastline due to activities of humans, both within and at the inland of the coastal zone (Table ). Managing human activities and development initiatives along an already eroding and continually developing coastline is so much complicated.

The Special Coastal Management Area (SCMA) concept based on comanagement principles is considered to be an effective and viable approach for integrated coastal resources management in Sri Lanka. The Coastal Resource Management Project addressed urgent coastal problems in Sri Lanka, including (i) serious erosion, especially in areas with concentrated economic activity or vital infrastructure; (ii) unmanaged fishing; (iii) pollution and uncontrolled exploitation of lagoons, estuaries, coral reefs, sea grassmangroves, beds, wetlands, and.

Their conclusion is that Sri Lanka should implement a coastal zone planning and management programme in order to mitigate the possible risk of sea level rising due to climate change.

Sandeep Jayawardena of IPS has looked at another area relating to sea level rising due to climate change. That is, its impact on coral reefs of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka has developed a range of policies for combating adverse impacts from global climate change.
