2:45 PM INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION: Conquering the sea - Why do land reclamation projects fail and what can we do to mitigate risk?

Artificial islands are an expensive and risky undertaking that can span decades. With billions of dollars being invested in island and waterfront projects It is essential to have an effective risk management strategy in place to avoid a costly nightmare.

Senior management will :
  • Consider the consequences of artificial island projects that lack appropriate designs
  • Identify flaws that can appear in the early stages of development to prevent redesign, reconstruction and safety issues
  • Weather and climate change risks and the long-term effects
  • Proactive maintenance strategies to predict and prevent failures before they happen
