Coastal aquifers provide water for over one billion people worldwide; however, they face seawater intrusion due to overpumping. The current and future challenges of coastal aquifer management involve issues such as climate change and the control of abstraction and recharge. Different management approaches are being used globally to prevent aquifer salinization. This essay presents the challenges and possible solutions while also discussing the different approaches and their needs for improvement.
