The autumn edition of txtures in 2016 focuses on global water issues and possible solutions with geosynthetics.
The climate is changing: the Earth continues to warm up; sea levels are rising, icecaps and glaciers are melting, storms are becoming more severe. It is not only the causes of this global warming that must be tackled, global measures are also necessary to prevent habitats from disappearing below sea level and infrastructure from being destroyed.
