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 order to strike a balance between economic growth and environmental conservation, the non-dredged reclamation method should be adopted for future reclamation projects as it is more environmentally friendly.Though reclamation can provide for the requirements of the economic development, the conventional reclamation method causes water pollution, air pollution and adversely affects the marine ecosystem, which is not an ideal act...

Therefore, by lowering human demand for natural water, fewer ecosystems are destroyed.By reusing water, the overall amount of discharged water waste is decreased.This tremendously lowers our overall level of water pollution in small creeks and rivers.It does not directly re-enter the water streams, but instead is treated and then redistributed straight back into the pipes to be reused.The water also prevents further extraction of natural water from the environment.

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.Soon, all the land will be flooded and the countries will disappear one by one.For example, instead of cutting down trees to acquire new land, we can perform land reclamation.The waste products that were made while processing forest products would be dumped into the river; thus, polluting it.

In recent years environmental benefits of recycling have become a major component of waste management programme.How is recycled water defined?These include: • Water reclamation • Water recycling • Water reuse • Wastewater • Sewage effluent • Reclaimed water • Grey water Water recycling can include: • Recycling of wastewater from previous uses.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.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 ...

The greatest value of mangroves to the coastal area is its protection against storms and flood surges, for example in the 2004 Asian tsunami only 2 people dies in a Sri Lanka village which had dense mangroves in its coastline, however in a similar village without mangrove protection over 6000 die.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.Coral reefs are produced by living organisms, they are found in shallow,tropical water and home to a massive range of animal and plant life.Man...

Unused available land over the years turns barren; this land then cannot be used.The degradation of land that could be used constructively in other words is land 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.This leads to further deterioration of land, and pollution caused by the land fill contents.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.

Besides that, the demand of land keep on increasing as times goes by.When there is no more empty land for oil plantation, deforestation has become the option again to have lands.Land reclamation is creating new lands from oceans or riverbeds.Besides meeting the demand of land, the weakness shown in the government’s rules is also one of the causes (Laurance, 1999).Soon, all the land will be flooded and the country will disappear one by one.

There are different types of costs, including short-term costs which will be incurred within five years and long-term costs which will be incurred during the whole reclamation period.The strategic location of the South Face Mine, owned by Mountain Mining Canada Ltd (MMCL), catches the attention of Can-Do to make an offer for purchasing the mine.It is recommended that a detailed investigation should be carried out to verify the estimated costs in the budget as well as to locate any other problems.The purchase of the South Face Mine, currently owned by Mountain Mining Canada Limited (MMCL), can provide Can-Do a very large reduction in operating cost of North Fork Mine, located adjacent to South Face Mine, by an estimated amount up to $1.5 ...

Land reclamation was a success in the sense that it created jobs and cleared malarial swamps like the Pontine, but the amount of land reclaimed was very small.The economy suffered a number of structural weaknesses: there were limited raw materials and although the North was developed the South was very backward and there was a high level of illiteracy.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.Its aim was not just to entertain, but also to improve the health of Italians and to gain their support for the regime.Another project Mussolini considered a huge success was the land reclamation in the Pontine Marshes.

To conclude I feel that seeing as mangroves have such a high biological and genetic diversity and uniqueness which cannot be found anywhere else, and so many food-chains and species depend on them, conserving them would be most beneficial to both us and a variety of different species in the long term.Conserving mangroves could be hugely expensive, whereas removing them could be hugely profitable.I have realised the huge importance of mangrove ecosystems, and when weighing up the benefits of conserving them as opposed to the benefits or removing them I think many times it depends on the countries economic position and whether it can afford to remove or conserve them.Mangroves have been lost to land reclamation, and to construction of fish...

As well as this, there was a decline in the quality of the average Italian diet as traditional exports including wine and olive oil were declined as all of the land available was being used for grain production.A further way in which Mussolini’s economic policies were a success in the years 1925 to 1940 was through generating popular support via propaganda successes such as the Battle for the Marshes and land reclamation.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.They drained the land here because important people such as journalists would visit Rome, not the rural countryside.The battle ...
