What's Next For Land Reclamation & Coastal Resilience in Hong Kong?
At a roundtable luncheon on 20 February, Arcadis’s Global Leader for Water Management, Piet Dircke, presented on how Hong Kong could draw on the Dutch approach by using the Polder system of enclosing areas of wetlands through dikes in land reclamation.
