Due to the limited land supply, reclamation is commonly used to tackle the problem in Hong Kong.It can be concluded that the non-dredge reclamation method will bring less environmental impacts and therefore it is a better choice for reclamation.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.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).

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).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.Mussolini did not view this as a failure as he thought this would make the community tougher but inevitably they didn’t agree.The government gave grants to farmers for machinery and fertilisers and due to this grain production did increase from 5.5 million tonnes per year (1925) to 7 million in 1935, imports were also reduced by 75%.As well as this, there was a decline in the quality of the average Italian die...

.. Construction waste can be minimised by avoiding making waste, reusing waste without reprocessing and recycling materials.In 2001, construction site and demolition waste in Britain was 94 million tonnes (24% of all waste generated).Unused materials and waste from packaging can be returned to the suppliers to be reused or recycled.The adoption of (JIT) Just-in-Time delivery will also contribute to minimise waste this is because so materials are ordered and delivered to demand.Considering these facts, waste management on-site is extremely important to minimising the waste produced on the construction site.

It forced people from the land into the towns and, when domestic urban employment was unavailable, overseas to the new regions of primary production.In the early stages of the industrial revolution, when textile production expanded rapidly, and machinery continued to be constructed largely of wood, agricultural raw materials dominated these exchanges, especially raw cotton and timber.Factories developed simply because the new machinery that was developed in the Industrial Revolution was too large to fit into small buildings and were more efficiently used in a new type of building.Industrialisation would never have happened so rapidly if it wasn’t for the rapid development of new ideas, methods and machinery.Kindleberger, C.P., Foreign Tr...

These methods are able to fulfill the demands for land as well as preserve the forest at the same time.Soon, all the land will be flooded and the countries will disappear one by one.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.Besides meeting the demand of land, the weakness shown in the government’s policies is also one of the causes for deforestation (Laurance, 1999).Besides cutting down trees for more land, land reclamation can be taken to acquire more land.

The same is true of the O.N.D (the opera nazonale Dopolavoro) which organised state-sponsored after work entertainment and sport.It definitely helped win support for the regime but it did not help turn Italians into committed Fascists.However, when you analyse the impact of the policies they rarely achieved their desired aims.However it was a hollow victory; much of the land taken for grain production was unsuitable, yields were low and the price of bread increased.Many of Mussolini’s domestic policies appeared populist and successful at a superficial level.

The non-inert waste (such as metal, timber and packaging waste) can be recycled or disposed of in landfills.Construction waste can be divided into three principal categories namely material, labour, and machinery waste.Material construction waste can be classify as natural waste (unavoidable waste allowed for in the tender), indirect waste (material used for purposes other than that for which it was ordered), and direct waste (material which is encountered for).Therefore it can be concluded that there is a significant waste reduction when pre-cast concrete is used.The composition of construction waste is divided into two major categories: inert materials (soft and hard inert materials) and non-inert waste.

Maximize land use by doing land reclamation .the availability of fertile land will be essential for healthy crops and livestock and also promotes biodiversity, filtering and efficient use of water, avoiding nutrients run-off.The social aspect of ensuring sustainable agriculture is by ensuring that farmers receive returns which are fair, and that high quality labor conditions exist throughout the chain of supply.Fertile land acts as a carbon sink minimizing the forces of climate change.Access to education, training and health for laborers and their families can be facilitated by businesses.By ensuring animal welfare is maintained agricultural sustainability can be achieved.

However, some of the waste reduction management techniques are given below: The feeding of food scraps to animals is, historically, the most common way of dealing with household food waste .Earlier only animal waste was enough to maintain soil fertility.Exploitation of land with excessive use of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides leads to land fertility degradation.Nearly 10 per cent of our harvest goes waste every year in the absence of proper storage facilities.As the technological assistance helped farmers produce a considerably good yield from a limited portion of land, more and more land got occupied by industries and other factories.
