Introduction
For my PhD project I study how human decisions have affected the natural landscape, biodiversity and vulnerability of coastal areas in South-East Asia (Taiwan/Vietnam). I will explore Nature-based Solutions in an Eco-DRR framework and asses the vulnerability of coastal areas, to bring forward key factors that need to be addressed to enhance ecosystems and make coastal environments more resistant to natural hazards.

Caota Sand Dunes Geopark was established in June 2020 and conserves a landscape of coastal sand dunes at the Taoyuan coastline. This is the first geopark in Taiwan to promote the value of coastal dunes, recognizing their ecological value and their protection function in the face of climate change. This geopark has been actively promoted and attract...

Coastal erosion is a common issue and has increasingly become one of the stark challenges along the Vietnamese coastline, in the age of global climate change. Large parts of the coast have already been eroded over the past decades and exacerbated by climate change effects, coastal erosion remains a serious threat to coastal habitats and residents....

Vietnam attracts many tourists owing to its unique and diverse geological landscapes. The Vietnam tourism development strategy until 2030 sets a target to make tourism a more sustainable economic sector, in which the advantages of natural resources and development of a variety of tourism products are promoted. Binh Thuan province in central-south V...
Chapter
Both natural and anthropogenic forces could play significant roles in coastal erosion in Western Taiwan and Central Vietnam's coastlines. Intensive socio-economic development, sea level rise, more frequent and strong intensity of disasters are predicted to occur in a future of global climate change, which poses an urgent need for coastal hazard man...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal environments are deteriorating worldwide due to a combination of human activities and natural stressors, such as land-use change, coastal erosion, sea level rise, pollution, etc. These degraded environments are vulnerable and can become a driver for disaster risk. As a countermeasure to these challenges, Nature-based Solutions (NbS) gain mo...

Vietnam is a country that is heavily affected by global climate change, with the coastal zone and low-lying river deltas being especially vulnerable. The coastal zone has rapidly evolved over the past few decades, as coastal tourism and other social-economic developments and industries all seek fortune and exploit resources in this area. Along w...

In this paper we present new data on tsaganomyid species from the Oligocene of Mongolia. This group of rodents, endemic to Mongolia, China, and Kazakhstan, is not well known. In the context of the well-dated sediments from the Taatsiin Gol and Taatsiin Tsagaan Nuur, Valley of Lakes, we were able to establish their occurrence precisely. We present a...
