Project Summary

Ecological river remediation park

From a flood-prone parcel of communal land, the Ecological river remediation park creates a public park, and more – an ecosystem, cultural center and commercial market garden – in a partnership involving local farmers, public authorities and NGOs.

A series of lakes biologically treats waste-water, provides fishing opportunities and gives water birds a home.

Our website search engine covers the web pages including project descriptions and expert profiles, PDFs, images and videos on the Holcim Foundation website. To improve your search results, here are some tips:

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word


(clay OR mud) AND (school OR university)

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)


Asterisk (*) matches any word or phrase - so archit* will find architect, architecture, architectural as well as architrave
