1st Coastal & Environment Summit for Public Authorities & Private Contractors in Coastal Engineering, Coastal Defence and Coastal Environmental Sustainable Development
7th November 2017 - 10th November 2017
Coastal and Marine Habitat Protection & Conservation have become major global agenda across national departments, authorities and ministries responsible for environment, wildlife protection, land uses and coastal zone development communities. Losses of biodiversity, disturbance of marine species, coastal erosion, degradation of natural habitat can be associated with and caused by combination of various factors including natural and man-made changes to coastal environments including rising sea levels, land reclamation, protective structures development, waterborne transportation networks, ports development oil spills, marine fragmentation, sewage discharge, poor beach drainage systems, and many more.
Such interconnections are threatening the sustainability of ecological balance of coastal zones where more than 40% World’s population as well as key commercial & industrial activities – including fishing, shipping and tourism – are nourished and thrived. Across the world, national environment protection authorities are developing integrated coastal zone management to better develop protective measures for marine habitats, while searching for fitting solutions in minimizing undesired impacts of coastal engineering projects
Contributing to the efforts of coastal development communities in conserving and protecting the coastal environment and marine habitats against negative impacts of climate changes and engineering activities, Equip Global is proud to announce the Coastal & Environment Summit 2017 – An international summit gathering the participation of key stakeholders involved in coastal environments, including marine engineers, architects, port planners, conservationists and policy-makers across the world to share and discuss results, findings and proven practices in protecting coastal environments and conserving marine habitats.
