Singapore to raise reclaimed land level

What would happen to our coastal land  as sea level around Singapore is predicted to rise between 24 and 65 centimetres by 2100?

How can we battle against climate change?

About 70 per cent of the coast line is already protected by hard structures like sea walls or stone embankments, which help protect against coastal erosion. Do you think they will be effective in protecting the coast in the long term?

"Geo bags"  had been added to one eroded stretch of the beach, near the Road Safety Park. Geo bags are a type of sandbag made of a special sticky material that sand can adhere to. Apart from successfully building up beach two years on since 2010, the sandy surface of the bags also help them blend naturally into the beach front. How effectively do you think this will be against coastal erosion?
