The experts proposed some solutions to anti-erosion at Hoi An beach such as: prohibiting sand exploitation in Thu Bon riverside, preventing the lower course from pollutants from the upper course, building wall to stop waves, consolidating sand at Cua Dai beach… According to French Ambassador to Vietnam Bertrand Lortholary, the Government of France decided to invest and support to find out the accurate causes and anti-erosion solutions at Hoi An beach.
