Sponge Cities Are Not The End All Solution To Flood Mitigation

We talk about Sponge Cities! A very interesting concept on how cities can be designed to improve their management of water and increasingly discussed as a solution to manage our increasing flash floods. 

  • We speak to James Lau from Dr Nik & Associates to get his perspective on this as well as his views on the recent flood mitigation activities announced by DBKL.
