Why is it important?

This study identified that residents have a keen awareness of environmental conservation and aspire to incorporate an eco-friendly construction plan for the seawalls. However, there also exists an unfavorable community environment in which residents feel it is difficult to express their opinions.


Enhancing consciousness of environmental preservation may make it possible to achieve community consensus and choose an alternative eco-friendly plan.
