Microplastics (MPs), miniscule plastic particles measuring less than 5 mm in size, have become a concern in terrestrial ecosystems, with primarily agricultural and wetland soils being the soils with highest plastic loadings. The adverse effect of MPs might lead to changes in physicochemical and biological characteristics of soil including...

Constructed wetlands (CWs) have been proven to effectively immobilize plastic particles. However, little is known about the differences in the impact of varying sized plastic particles on nitrous oxide (N<sub>2</sub>O) release, as well as the intervention mechanisms in CWs. Here, we built a lab-scale wetland model and introduced plastic...

This project explores the potential of a specific type of natural-based decentralised wastewater treatment solution in a fast-growing area: Campbelltown local government area (LGA), Sydney, with a focus on experimental design based on different densification scenarios and centralisation level of treatment scheme. The analysis and design are...

The Paraná Delta, a vital component of the La Plata river basin, is facing severe environmental degradation due to human activities and external pressures. This thesis explores the adaptive capacity of the deltaic system and stakeholders in the ‘Los Pájaros y sus Pueblos Libres’ reserve (LPPL), aiming to propose a strategy for sustainable...

This project investigates the possibilities of the biobased material reed from local sources to reduce embodied energy emissions in the building sector. The drained wetlands in the Netherlands release carbon into the atmosphere leading to the inability of the wetlands to serve as carbon sinks and habitats. The rewetting of polders leads to the...

Excessive carbon emission has led to global warming, resulting in climate change. Due to this, the natural carbon and water cycles are disbalanced leading to extreme (water-related) events, such as flooding, periods of drought and diminished water quality. The degradation of ecosystems and threat to human survival are direct consequences of this...

Dredged cohesive sediment is progressively being used for wetland construction. However, little is known about the effect of plant growth during the self-weight consolidation of this sediment. In order to check the feasibility of such a study, a new experimental setup has been constructed. As an example, the effect of Phragmites australis on the...

Ammonia-oxidizing microorganisms (AOMs, archaea (AOA) and bacteria (AOB)) are primarily responsible for the ammoxidation in constructed wetlands (CWs). However, little is known about evaluating the response of AOA and AOB to engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and quantifying the shift of their contribution to ammoxidation. Herein, we operated a...

As space in urban environments becomes more precious, planning for a nature inclusive infrastructure needs to be considered using a multi-layered approach to ensure effective urban foresting. Therefore, this research focusses on the integration of urban ecologies, forest ecologies and the ecological relationship with the individual, to create...

From 2018 to 2020, the city of Breda (NL) faced drought, with significant economic losses and water scarcity problems. The water board within which the city is located began to consider new possible water management practices, due to the unsustainability of the current ones. This study aims to investigate how a change of the current paradigm can...

Uganda’s capital Kampala, is grappling with the effects of rapid urbanisation fueled by the population explosion that has transpired over the recent years. Due to the continued futility of urban planning efforts, the city’s growth has proceeded with minimal planning intervention, resulting in multiple urban development challenges.<br/>Kampala’s...

Saltwater intrusion in groundwater is a concern in many aquifers around the world. It results in deterioration of potable and irrigation water quality and degradation of ecosystems. The problem is exacerbated by fresh groundwater abstraction, drying climates and a rising seawater level.<br/>Esperance is a small town situated on the south coast...

Agricultural activities can be important source of organic pollution. In agricultural intensive areas, organic chemicals have a high possibility of entering the water cycle, which could pose a potential risk to human health. Low-cost and high efficiency in-situ techniques instead of energy and money consuming ones to control agricultural organic...

Seasonal wetlands in the tropics are important habitats for local and migratory bird species. In the northwestern Pacific of Costa Rica, Palo Verde National Park has one of the most important seasonal wetlands of Central America. The management history of this wetland has shown the impact of invasive plant species such as Parkinsonia aculeata...

Stenen Hoofd City Hotel together with a wetland create a new conditions on a previously not maintained pier in Amsterdam. Based on the Doughnut Economics and Hotel Typology research this intervention responds to the local ecological lens of the Amsterdam's Doughnut Model. Biodiversity of the site is enriched by the wetlands flora and fauna while...

In this research light earth building is assessed on its possibilities to be applied in a more urban manner. Through literature studies and key performance indicators a view on which light earth building methods could be applied on larger scale development is established. Also, the possibilities of harvesting the resources in the region of...

The Mara Wetland in Tanzania has an important role in regulating the quality, timing and magnitude of the flow of water into Lake Victoria. In addition, the wetland provides natural resources for local communities and habitat for variety of species. The planned dam construction upstream of the wetland and projected changes in the local climate...

Floodplain wetlands are a fundamental part of the African continent’s ecosystem and serve as habitat for fish and wildlife species, biodiversity, and micro-organisms that support life. It is generally recognised that wetlands are and remain fragile ecosystems that should be subject to sustainable conservation and management through the use of...

Large quantities of natural and synthetic hormones contained in livestock waste and wastewater (LWW) can cause serious problems in our environment. Composting and anaerobic digestion cannot remove hormones efficiently, so they should be modified to enhance the treatment processes. In addition, constructed wetlands show decent rates for...
