The paper proposes eco-friendly adaptive techniques using locally available materials and industrial by-products. Used automobile tires, as an industrial by-product, were combined with palm fibers to construct reinforced dyke systems as a multiple protective measure. The tires used with a mangrove plantation inside can work together with mangroves to protect against impacts from such severe climate events as storm surges. The addition of the palm fibers plays a role in increasing dyke stability, particularly when mixed with cement and dyke soils.
