In addition to reclamation, development of underground space should be considered which can act as an alternative to increase land supply and reserve our valuable harbour.According to Chan (2000), dredging and disposal of waste involved in reclamation will bring adverse effects to the marine ecosystem.While both measures can relieve the problem of lack of available land, developing underground space has some advantages over reclamation.Rock caverns can be developed for various land uses such as crematorium, substation, sewage treatment facilities etc (Hong Kong Underground Space Study Executive Summary, 2009).Due to the limited land supply, reclamation is commonly used to tackle the problem in Hong Kong.

However, the cost of treatment may make reclamation uneconomical for some uses.In recent years environmental benefits of recycling have become a major component of waste management programme.This generally means the reclamation of water from domestic sewage effluent or municipal wastewater.How is recycled water defined?Recycled water is defined as water that has been treated to a ‘fit for purpose’ standard for a specific application.

Mangroves roots, which are exposed at low tide, trap silt and help create new land.Mangroves are vital for the habitats of wildlife as they provide vital nurseries for young sea creatures such as fish and crustaceans.Salt marshes are one of the most threatened ecosystems today threats include: • Land reclamation – people believe they are a waste of space so are drained • Industrial pollution- located in estuaries where trash is dumped.Reefs are under threat from pollution, over-fishing and increased acid in the ocean.• Many UK salt marshes have been reclaimed for farm land, but those that remain provide valuable habitats where salt-tolerant plants grow and birds nest.

Our population is already above a sustainable level, and in many regions it is well above a safe and prosperous level.The reason is a lack of new land to cultivate and a reduction in investment growth, irrigation and fertilizer.In conclusion, the global population is increasing and it has caused the lack of food, water and natural resources, the destruction of the nature reserve and the waste of power.But parents can keep in mind that every person must be cared for within the constraints of the local and global environment.Because arable agriculture has yet to be developed for reclamation... .

This leads to further deterioration of land, and pollution caused by the land fill contents.Unused available land over the years turns barren; this land then cannot be used.Also there is a constant waste of land.Land that is once converted into a dry or barren land, can never be made fertile again, whatever the magnitude of measures to redeem it are.Also due to the lack of green cover, the land gets affected in several ways like soil erosion occurs washing away the fertile portions of the land.

Besides that, the demand for land gradually increases as time goes by.The waste products that were made while processing forest products would be dumped into the river; thus, polluting it.Soon, all the land will be flooded and the countries will disappear one by one.This is because the increase in popularity has increased the demand of land to build houses.As I have stated earlier, the causes of deforestation are the large sum of foreign debt, the increasing demand for land, and the weakness in the government’s policies.

To stabilize the land, the bare ground is seeded with plants that eventually grow to cover the soil, holding it in place” (Berg, 2013).Soil reclamation can be executed by “(1) stabilizing the land to prevent further erosion and (2) restoring the soil to its former fertility.Degradation is “both a natural and a human-induced process that decreases the future ability of the land to support crops or livestock” (Berg, 2013).One agricultural challenge that society faces is the lost of agricultural land.The loss of rural land means that food will have to travel longer and use more resources to do so.

Besides the legal framework, in order to minimize the social cost from casino credit, in my opinion, the jurisdiction needs to develop sound and safe banking system before legalizing casino credit activities.Nevada has potentially grown where visitors spend over 25 billion on gaming monthly, this does not include shopping food, etc.This industry creates job opportunities and revenue to the community and government yet not without any side effect.In conclusion gambling was re-legalized in 1931 as gaming expanded in the 1960’s, the casino industry remained geographically isolated in the state of Nevada.We need to be responsible with our mining because of the environmental impact on our land.

With the government bearing no restrictions on the land, the government was able to distribute the Indian land in hopes that the Indians would sell their land to individuals from the east.The west’s development as a whole was definitely the result of the aid of the federal government by constructing railroads, promoting and protecting the land, and removing the Indian tribes.Those individuals could then use the land for mining, ranching, or farming.The Act called for the gradual elimination of tribal land ownership and allotment of land tracts to individual owners.The Indian owners could gain full ownership of the land in 25 years, presumably to prevent them from selling the land immediately and try to live the American way; non-nomadic....

They drained the land here because important people such as journalists would visit Rome, not the rural countryside.The battle of the Marshes was essentially a lot of propaganda as the Pontine Marshes which were 50km from Rome were drained and farms were set up on the land, which of course increased public health there.Also, the Italian diet decreased through his methods of autarky thus decreasing public health, which was probably a worse failure than not being at all self-sufficient.It could be argued that the battle actually was a failure as the vast majority of the land that they claimed would be drained, did not get touched at all (1/20 were).Mussolini did not view this as a failure as he thought this would make the community tougher...

“Construction waste has a high potential for recovery and re-use (Cosper et al., 1993; Schlauder and Brickner, 1993) and recycling options for solid construction waste are also increasing (Merry, 1990; von Stein and Savage, 1994).” .Effective waste management therefore requires a collaborative effort through the construction supply chain in which the client, designer, materials manufacturers and suppliers, construction and demolition contractors and waste disposal contractors all have an important role to play.Rather, the problem is cultural and lies in changing people’s attitudes to issues such as waste management.Accurate estimating and ordering with nil allowance for waste reduces the volume of waste, the cost of materials and the cos...

Solid waste landfills must be designed to protect the environment from contaminants which may be present in the solid waste stream.Rather than throwing away leaves and other household organic matter if you use them as compost, soil is replenished thereby reducing cost of land reclamation.Since human cities began to be more rigorous, solid waste management became a serious matter and for a reason, some industrialized nations today, solid waste management is a multimillion dollar business.Waste problem being one of the foremost and mounting problems in other countries have been hazardous not only on human’s health but also causes depletion for lands which is why solid waste management was generated.Some of the other methods of waste dispos...
