The coasts are economically important since a large part of activities such as fishing, tourism and commerce occur at the coast, especially in Africa. Coastal erosion is having devastating effects, inducing the loss of infrastructure such as roads, properties and human lives due to climate change and sea level rise.

Mawums is working with the Ministry of Water Resources, Works & Housing to work in targeted communities to tackle coastal issues by using its engineers. Where needed, external consultants and construction firms will be associated with to embark on major coastal protection projects along the coastal belt of Ghana.
