This project will address soil salinity problem through providing information to the local sector and infrastructure planning in agriculture and fishery; risk management particularly disaster risk management and climate change adaptation; and policy recommendation.

The project generally aims to develop a national information system for the coastal areas affected by salinity.

Specifically, it aims to:

  1. Describe the soil physico-chemical characteristics
  2. Generate salinity maps
  3. Develop spatial database on salinity for the coastal areas
  4. Undertake suitability evaluation for agriculture and fisheries and prepare scenarios as input to policy.
