River and Coastal Shapers

“If a man fails to honor the rivers, he shall not gain the life from them.”

Rivers are dynamic. The flow of a river, and the amount of water in a river, changes. The form or shape of a river changes and so does coastal region. A large proportion of the world's population live and work near coasts and rivers. Rivers and coasts make perfect artistical paintings on natural canvas called, the Earth. Creating the comfort zone within the environment is one of the survival instincts for human being.

Rivers were crucial to the survival of early civilizations because they were responsible for providing a source of water, irrigation for good farmland and a way for people to trade with other people through water transportation. Similarly, in a recent decade, rivers are still precious to human being. Considering about sedimentation, freshwater, sanitation has significant factors till now.

More than half of the world’s population lives in cities, especially in coastal regions due to economic status and trading. Growing world’s population has demanded to create more living space in coastal region. Land Reclamation is one of the options to allocate upcoming populations. To withstand storm that is usually coming from the ocean, it makes sure to support the coastal regions’ strength and capacity.
