Toelichting (Engels) Ecosystem-based adaptation is increasingly being mentioned as a measure against the adverse effects of climate change. Oyster reefs have the potential to serve as an ecosystem-based adaptation measure. The objective of this thesis is to explore whether an oyster reef or a breakwater of stones is a more cost-effective measure against coastal erosion in the Eastern Scheldt. This is done by performing an incremental cost-benefit analysis of an oyster reef as compared to a breakwater of stones, including tangible and non-tangible costs and benefits. The results of the analysis indicate that oyster reefs are a more cost-effective measure. However, the study was hampered by the lack of quantitative data to fully justify the use of oyster reefs instead of a breakwater of stones.
