About Us

Welcome to GIS-Coastal

We are a foundation dedicated to the protection, conservation, and sustainable management of coastal and marine resources. With strong commitment to preserving the invaluable coastal and marine ecosystem, we strive to ensure their long-term viability for present and future generations. 

Why Coastal Resource Management Matters

Coastal areas are dynamic and diverse ecosystems that provide a multitude of benefits to both human communities and the environment. They support a rich array of marine life, act as natural buffers against storms and erosion, and offer countless recreational opportunities. However, these fragile ecosystems face numerous challenges that threaten their long-term health and sustainability.

Habitat Destruction

Coastal development, pollution, and unsustainable fishing practices contribute to the degradation and loss of critical coastal habitats such as mangroves, coral reefs, and seagrass beds. This destruction has far-reaching consequences for biodiversity and ecosystem balance.

Climate Change Impacts

Rising sea levels, ocean acidification, and more frequent extreme weather events pose significant threats to coastal areas. These changes can result in coastal erosion, habitat loss, and disruption of delicate ecosystems.

Overfishing and Unsustainable Practices

Overexploitation of fish stocks, destructive fishing methods, and inadequate fisheries management lead to the depletion of marine resources. This threatens the livelihoods of coastal communities and compromises the ecological balance of the marine ecosystem.

Pollution and Marine Debris

Contamination from industrial runoff, improper waste disposal, and plastic pollution endanger coastal ecosystems. Marine debris poses a severe threat to marine life, causing entanglement and ingestion issues.

Our Service

Environmental Assessment and Monitoring

We offer comprehensive assessment of coastal environmental conditions and provide continuous monitoring services. Our monitoring programs provides ongoing insights into the changing dynamics of coastal ecosystems, enabling informed decision-making and effective management strategies.

Conservation Planning and Management

We specialize in developing conservation plans and implementing effective management strategies for coastal and marine environments. Our goal is to strike a balance between the needs of human development and the ecological preservation.

Training and Education

Through our training and education programs, we empower communities, stakeholders, and professionals with the tools and knowledge to understand and address the challenges facing coastal ecosystem.

VISION

To be a globally recognized consulting foundation in providing innovative and sustainable solutions for the conservation of coastal and marine resources, preserving biodiversity, and ensuring the long-term sustainability of coastal and marine ecosystem for a better future.
