Asia's increasing extreme weather patterns and climate change impacts have led to a surge in weather and water-related calamities, including devastating landslides, floods, and storms. Rising sea levels, driven by factors such as increasing ocean temperatures and continuous rainfall, could lead to a substantial rise of 1.8 meters by 2100 and 5 meters by 2150 in Singapore. Given these conditions, it is estimated that 65% of Singapore’s coastline might be unviable to defend against such extreme sea level rises. The accelerating rise in sea levels heightens the risk of flooding, leading to significant soil irrigation issues. Consequently, soil mechanics play a crucial role in mitigating these risks to prevent further damage.

In 2022, Asia experienced 81 disasters, resulting in over 5,000 fatalities, directly affecting over 50 million people, and causing economic damages exceeding USD 36 billion. These disasters are often exacerbated by rapid urban development in hilly areas, posing significant geo-hazards that jeopardize both the environment and socio-economics stability. With 40% of the world's population residing near coasts and a global population projected to reach 9 billion by 2050, land reclamation emerges as a multifaceted solution. This approach not only addresses challenges from flood resilience to agricultural opportunities, but also supports urban

expansion and economic progress.

Furthermore, in Singapore, minor landslides have been a recurring concern since the 1970s. Geotechnical engineering is crucial for assessing soil mass stability against gravitational and dynamic loads, including earthquakes, thereby enhancing slope designs and mitigating landslide risks. Comprehensive planning, design, construction, and maintenance practices are vital for safe and cost-effective hillside development.

Join us at the Geotech Summit to gain insights from industry leaders on technological advances in geotechnical engineering related to slope stability and land reclamation. This summit aims to resolve critical issues in slope engineering, dredging, and land reclamation operations. Attend this summit to share proven case studies and strategies for slope design, coastal flood resiliency, urban climate adaptation, and land reclamation with professionals from the engineering and construction fields.
