A group of students and teachers from Delft University of Technology has teamed up with Ghanaian students of KNUST to develop integrated solutions for the complex challenges of the Volta Delta in Ghana.The Volta Delta is experiencing interacting problems due to a combination of climate change, coastal erosion, intensive urbanization and poor land use planning. One of the major problems is severe coastal erosion that affects coastal communities.Engineering solutions, such as the construction of groins and revetments have stabilized parts of the coast, but also blocked access to the beach, which is affecting traditional marine fishing activities, and have led to increased erosion of neighboring areas.In the lagoons, industrialization of salt mining and the development of intensive agriculture and unplanned urbanization put pressure on the delta’s ecosystem.The workshop funded by the Delft Deltas, Infrastructure and Mobility Initiative (DIMI) and Delta Alliance sought to improve the understanding of the complex challenges of the Volta delta.Although the workshop did not aim to develop a comprehensive master plan, it helped to better understand the complexities of a delta that is urbanizing rapidly and that is threatened by climate change, reports TU Delft.During the workshop, the participants discussed whether coastal protection and infrastructure development could serve as a mechanism to steer urbanization to more preferred locations. While at the same time, setting up a network of local chiefs within the delta to guide long-term and integrated development.The students will continue working on the challenges of the Volta Delta within their individual MSc projects both at TU Delft and Ghanaian universities. A follow-up meeting will be held in Delft in April 2018.

highlights Lasith Malinga could become the 1st bowler to take 100 wickets in all formats.Shahid Afridi held the previous record for most wickets with 98.Sri Lanka lost by five wickets to New Zealand in Pallekele. New Delhi : Lasith Malinga retired on a high from ODIs during the series against Bangladesh which was immediately played after Sri Lanka’s disappointing 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup campaign. However, the 36-year-old pacer has shown that he is still a potent force in the Twenty20 Internationals and during the first match against New Zealand in Pallekele, Malinga put on a show which fetched him a new world record. However, it was bittersweet as Sri Lanka lost a high-scoring game by five wickets in Pallekele to give New Zealand a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.Sri Lanka chose to bat in a match which began late due to rain and they were boosted by an aggressive knock of 79 from Kusal Mendis. Mendis shared a partnership of 63 with Niroshan Dickwella and a couple of big hits in the last over from Isuru Udana helped Sri Lanka end on 174/4 after 20 overs. In the New Zealand innings, Malinga put on an exhibition which thrilled the fans in Pallekele.In the very first ball of the New Zealand innings, Malinga bowled Colin Munro for 0 with his vintage toe-crushing yorker. The wicket helped him draw level with former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi for most wickets in Twenty20 Internationals with 98.Also Read | Lasith Malinga ‘happy’ to make way for younger Sri LankansHowever, New Zealand staged a revival with Colin de Grandhomme and Ross Taylor stitching a 79-run stand for the fourth wicket. With the Kiwis coasting towards victory, Malinga produced one more spell of magic and he cleaned up de Grandhomme with a brilliant yorker for 44. The wicket gave Malinga a new record and he became the leading wicket-taker in T20Is with 99.Also Read | Lasith Malinga shares important secrets with THIS Australian all-rounderThe match headed towards a close finish and Malinga, who had figures of 3-0-8-2 was tasked to give Sri Lanka a miraculous win. However, his first ball was a disaster as it went for five wides and on the fifth ball, Malinga was thumped for a big six by Daryl Mitchell as he leaked 15 runs in the over to end with figures of 4-0-23-2. New Zealand won the match by five wickets but heading into the next game at the same venue on September 3, Malinga will be gunning for a special century as he aims to become the first bowler to take 100 wickets in T20Is.

Manchester: Rory Burns hit his third score of fifty or more this Ashes to lead England’s fightback with the bat in the fourth Test against Australia at Old Trafford on Friday. England were 125-2 at tea on the third day, still 372 runs behind Australia’s imposing first-innings 497-8 declared. Burns, however, was 62 not out, with England captain Joe Root 47 not out after the pair had put on exactly 100 runs for the third wicket.Rain meant there was no play before lunch and, as a result, the second session was extended to two hours and 50 minutes. England resumed on 23-1, with left-handed opener Burns 15 not out and nightwatchman Craig Overton three not out.Overton had added just two to his score when the ninth ball of the day saw him edge a full-length, rising delivery from Josh Hazlewood to second slip, where Steve Smith held a waist-high catch. Burns, who scored a century in the first Test, cover-drove Mitchell Starc for a resounding four.And when left-arm fast bowler Starc, playing his first match of the series, sent down a friendly full toss, Burns steered it through point for another four. There were more cheers from the crowd when Root clipped Pat Cummins for four. Burns, taking advantage of several loose deliveries from Starc on a relatively placid pitch, led the way as Root found his form. A back-foot drive for four off Starc and a steered boundary to third off the paceman saw Burns complete a 100-ball fifty including seven fours.Meanwhile, an increasingly assured Root pulled a harmless Hazlewood half-tracker for four to go to 47 as the skipper fought hard to deny Australia a win that would see them retain the Ashes at 2-1 up with one to play in a five-Test series.Smith’s 211 on Thursday, his third Test century in four innings, was the cornerstone of Australia’s total. The world’s top-ranked Test batsman, Smith missed England’s dramatic one-wicket win in the third Test at Headingley with concussion suffered when felled by a Jofra Archer bouncer during the drawn second match at Lord’s.This is the former Australia captain’s first Test series since a 12-month ban for his role in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. The 30-year-old has so far scored 589 runs in the series at a colossal average of 147.25, having marked his return to the format with scores of 144 and 142 during Australia’s 251-run win at Edgbaston.
