1:45 PM INTERACTIVE PANEL DISCUSSION: Shoreline management to ensure the sustainable development and protection of Middle Eastern coasts
The coastlines of Dubai have undergone rapid transformation over the last 20 years due to significant infrastructural development along its shores. However we can no longer ignore that the climate is changing and the rising sea levels are a threat to our coasts.
As a result coastal structures are exposed to the unpredictable nature of the sea and other elements. This exclusive session will identify critical components of shoreline management to ensure the protection of Middle Eastern coasts.
Senior management will acknowledgement:
- Monitoring and predicting coastal and environmental changes in the Middle East
- Inspection and maintenance of coastal structures
- Geotechnical considerations in shoreline protection and lad reclamation
- How to use waves and tides as external opportunities in sustainable coastal design rather than perceiving them as problem generators
