Coastal reservoir (CR) is an innovative concept of storing flood water from a river system before entering the sea. It is a paradigm shift in water resource development where water is stored downstream of the river, preferably near the river-sea confluence, rather than the conventional method of storing water in upstream dams. This chapter provides a brief introduction to the key issues associated with CR technology development. It provides a brief historic account of the formation of the International Association for Coastal Reservoir Research (IACRR) and its role in promoting CR worldwide. A summary on various chapters with information on all aspects of CR including its design, water quality, geotechnical considerations, modelling and experiences from around the world including China, UK, India, Malaysia and Australia are given in this first chapter. © 2020 Elsevier Inc.
