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).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.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.According to Chan (2000), dredging and disposal of waste involved i...

For example, instead of cutting down trees to acquire new land, we can perform land reclamation.Besides meeting the demand of land, the weakness shown in the government’s policies is also one of the causes for deforestation (Laurance, 1999).The waste products that were made while processing forest products would be dumped into the river; thus, polluting it.Besides that, the demand for land gradually increases as time goes by.Soon, all the land will be flooded and the countries will disappear one by one.

Besides cutting down trees for more land, land reclamation can become one of the ways to have more land.This is because the increase in popularity has increased the demand of land to build houses.Besides that, the demand of land keep on increasing as times goes by.Besides meeting the demand of land, the weakness shown in the government’s rules is also one of the causes (Laurance, 1999).When there is no more empty land for oil plantation, deforestation has become the option again to have lands.
