As the dredging process in reclamation is the fundamental cause for the environmental impacts mentioned above, the non-dredged reclamation method is advocated for the future reclamation projects.While both measures can relieve the problem of lack of available land, developing underground space has some advantages over reclamation.According to Chan (2000), dredging and disposal of waste involved in reclamation will bring adverse effects to the marine ecosystem.Enhanced use of underground space is an effective and feasible alternative to increase land supply as Hong Kong is mountainous and abundant with strong volcanic and granitic rocks.In order to strike a balance between economic growth and environmental conservation, the non-dredged re...

Water recycling is a generic term for water reclamation and reuse, where the resulting water is referred to as recycled water.Horticulture as classically defined is the subdivision of agriculture dealing in gardening: in contrast to agronomy which deals with field crops and the production of grains and forage, and forestry which deals with forest trees and products related to them.The word horticulture is a 17th century English adaptation of the Latin: hortus (garden) + cultura (culture)), it is the culture or growing of garden plants.This can include irrigating grazing land and crops, in horticulture, industrial processing, in residential dual pipe schemes, and to keep our public and recreational spaces green.These include: • Water recl...

Also known as water reclamation, water recycling is the process of extracting previously used water and treating it for reuse.Reclaimed water is cleaned and redistributed for land irrigation, to recharge ground water, for industrial applications (cooling the water for power plants and oil refineries), for toilet water, to irrigate golf courses and to create artificial snow.By reusing water, the overall amount of discharged water waste is decreased."Benefits of Sub-Surface Drip Irrigation" Greene Eden, Watering Systems.With a rapidly growing population, the amount of human waste and water consumption are increasing.

So in search of more land, potent land is hunted and its indigenous state is compromised with .The degradation of land that could be used constructively in other words is land pollution.Cause Air pollution: Landfills across the city keep on growing due to increase in waste and are later burned which leads to air pollution.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.Land conversion, meaning the alteration or modification of the original properties of the land to make it use-worthy for a specific purpose is another major cause.

Coral can be easily stressed by increased human activity, if continued for long periods coral begins to die.Reefs are under threat from pollution, over-fishing and increased acid in the ocean.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.Mangroves roots, which are exposed at low tide, trap silt and help create new land.• 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.

Soon, all the land will be flooded and the countries will disappear one by one.Land reclamation involves the creation of new lands from oceans or riverbeds.These methods are able to fulfill the demands for land as well as preserve the forest at the same time.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).

Recycling of solid waste means re-used the waste after that waste is re-processed.In the waste management process, additional to the provision and emptying of skips, waste disposal contractors can also assist in through offering services.“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).” .“The practice of solid waste management is underpinned by a hierarchy of waste control measures (Peng et al., 1997).” This hierarchy, shown in Figure ##, means control measures are preferable to recycling rather than disposal the waste by incineration or land-filling.Accurate...

it started spreading to other parts of the globe in the 1950’s and 1960’s as a result of the success in producing more agricultural products and hence increasing the amount of calories produced per acre of agricultural land.Livestock being the central element of farming they play a vital role in meeting both productivity and sustainability objectives.Access to education, training and health for laborers and their families can be facilitated by businesses.Animal wastes cannot economically be recycled to the land in a nutrient recycling process because the production systems are remote geographically from the other cycles which can complete the cycle.Fertile land acts as a carbon sink minimizing the forces of climate change.

Mussolini did not view this as a failure as he thought this would make the community tougher but inevitably they didn’t agree.Even so, Workers’ living standards fell, wages fell by 10% between 1925-1938, 2 million were unemployed due the global depression and food prices rose and so the average diet declined in quality.This is because many of them actually resulted in a negative effect for the Italian people and even some of the apparent successes like the Battle for the Marshes was actually just a propaganda stunt and not much had actually been achieved, the people just thought it had.To conclude, I think that while the Battle for grain and parts of autarky and keeping bis businesses happy were successful many of his economic policies b...

Industrialized agriculture are modern “agricultural methods that require large capital inputs and less land and labor than traditional methods” (Berg, 2013).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).Once the soil is returned back to its original state, the land can be used again.Public land is available for recreational purposes such as hiking, swimming and boating.Desertification is progressive degradation that produces desert-like conditions on land that was used previously and was plentiful.
