Event Description

Climate change has brought more extreme weather to Hong Kong and its impact to their drainage system could be substantial. With the continued urban development, it poses new challenges to an already reliable drainage system.Building flood resilience in the drainage infrastructure becomes more important in this ever-changing world.In this presentation, our speaker, Ir Richard WM LEUNG, will share with the participants how the drainage services department is shaping Hong Kong into a climate ready and flood resilient city by changing drainage infrastructure design from a “resistance” approach to a more sustainable “resilient” approach.
