2020 Sustainable Slope Excellence Award


The close proximity of steeply sloping terrain to buildings and infrastructure in Hong Kong, coupled with seasonal torrential rainfall, inevitably brings with it the risk of casualties due to landslides.  On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Landslip Prevention and Mitigation Programme, the GEO organised a special event, namely the"2020 Sustainable Slope Excellence Award", with support from Development Bureau - Greening, Landscape and Tree Management Section, The Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers – Geotechnical Division, the Conservancy Association and Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department. The event promoted good practice and enhanced trans-disciplinary input to integrate slope landscape design with ecological and sustainability considerations.
