The Black & Veatch team of experts can predict the impacts associated with sea level rise, land subsidence and flood events, but the engagement of all stakeholders in the final solution is critical to finding successful outcomes. In addition to coastal resilience and flood mitigation and adaptation, we have helped clients to develop integrated strategies to adapt to water scarcity and drought. Our approaches have included water conservation, climate risk management and integrated supply planning to develop new water resources that are less susceptible to climate change. Black & Veatch’s job is to deliver sustainable projects. We help to protect habitats, fish and eel populations, and precious ecosystems for the long term. Our environmental scientists share their knowledge of changes in water quality, soil and topography, flows, sediments and land use. We convey how those changes affect the presence of endangered, protected or exotic species. We also provide an understanding of hydrological patterns and how to deal with key ecological driving forces. Across many of Asia Pacific’s densely populated cities, we are seeing utilities explore integrated water resources management approaches that mitigate stormwater risks as well as boosting water supply. Black & Veatch’s James Currie, Prabha Kumar and Andy Kwok recently reported in World Water: Stormwater Management how bold strategies are strengthening the region’s resilience. Andy Kwok also takes a deeper dive on some of the Hong Kong solutions being explored in a separate report.
