“Performance-based Hybrid Infrastructure”

Presented by Sara Pezeshk

The performance-based hybrid infrastructure project is a mitigation strategy for resisting sea-level rise, deforestation of mangrove trees, restoring salt marsh and seagrass, reducing high sedimentation rate and water turbidity level, and the decelerating depopulation of marine biodiversity. This strategy is also causing significant damage to our ecosystem by making coastal areas more vulnerable to storms and destroying the coastal habitat.
