China (Hong Kong)

The Hong Kong New territories (946 km2), a region between two major urban areas of Hong Kong and Shenzhen


MOTIVATION FOR CHOICE ACCORDING TO HAZARD EXPOSURE AND ASSET VALUE
– Flooding, storm surge, extreme precipitation and heatwaves
– Extreme future heatwaves around densely populated agricultural regions
– Representative example of rural regions in South China and South East Asia
– Presence of high biodiversity value (birds and butterflies species)
– Key research base for heat mitigation with long time data and a comprehensive record of the vegetation/tree data

 

POSSIBLE NATURE-BASED AND HYBRID SOLUTIONS
– Restoring the evapotranspirant role of the unique fung shui woods
– Increase heat sinks by expanding the existing fung-shui woods for rural villages
– Increase afforestation by planting new native trees to promote evapotranspiration
– Valorize reservoirs and country parks
– Developing design guidelines of green solutions for local rural Hong Kong and possibly elsewhere
