With the threats of rapid urbanization and climate change rising, China is facing several water problems including water scarcity, urban flooding and water quality problems. The Wuhan Sponge City programme will create a direct opportunity to challenge this trends by developing a city’s infrastructure to hold, clean and drain water, using an ecologically-friendly approach.
Arcadis partners with Tata Consulting Engineers to help develop Guwahati’s urban and water infrastructure programme. Guwahati is one of the 20 pilot cities to launch a Smart City initiative in India. The project explores area based developments and prepare designs for implementation to improve infrastructure, sustainable real estate and living conditions.
