The People’s Committee of Quang Nam Province in central Vietnam has given the green light to an anti-erosion and coastline protection project in Hoi An City, a popular destination in the province, at a total cost of VND980 billion (US$41.2 million).

The capital will be sourced from official development assistance loans and the province’s budget.

The project is slated for completion in 2026.

The management board for agricultural and rural development investment projects was appointed as the investor of the project, which is set to consist of three subprojects.

The first subproject includes building a 2,090-meter breakwater and a 1,490-meter groin to reduce coastal erosion, backing coastline sustainability.

Piling up sand to strengthen beaches and constructing other supporting structures such as makeshift harbors are among the components of the first subproject.

As scheduled, the second subproject incorporates studying and evaluating coastal areas, constructing a concentrated coastline data center, and improving the automated water quality and environment check system.

The final subproject is managing the project.
