The drivers behind the state of environment in any city standout clearly as follows; urban expansion, industrialization, diversification of human activity and population are the drivers in all environmental challenges. All these changes require attention and preplanning to stop and prevent environmental degradation and to protect human life, societies and future generation.
The preplanning starts by completing an environmental assessment for the surrounding, air water and soil. This task will be completed by completing set of surveys and analysis.
Data environmental assessment and analysis will be based on the following surveys and assessment:
Archaeology & Cultural Heritage
Marine Coastal Environment
Traffic & Transportation
Energy & Climate Change
These surveys will help understanding the current situation of the surrounding environment and identifying the missing data and gaps in understanding the full picture to complete the state of environmental report. This report will have a full description for current environment state with risk a map book to identify the existing environmentally high risk areas.
- State of the Environment
- Map Book
- Cost of Environmental Degradation
- Environmental Degradation Report
Environmental & Social Master Plan
By completing the environmental assessment the environmental and social master planning will be completed by different response plans based on the client vision such as:
Water response Plans
Air Response Plans
Waste Response Plans
Land use Response Plan
