Ensuring the safety of the inhabitants and combating against the degradation of the natural environment in the face of climate change.
Faced with flooding, the only bulwark of Saint-Louis is the Langue de Barbarie, a sandy barrier weakened by human activity. To ensure a sustainable and resilient development of the city, Egis proposes different scenarios integrating technical, economic, environmental, social and institutional components.
In partnership with Deltares, Egis is carrying out a study for the design and implementation of an environmental monitoring and modelling system for the coastal zone of Saint-Louis, focusing on the behaviour of water bodies (coastal and river) and hydro-sedimentary dynamics. This should help prepare the Urban Master Plan (Plan Directeur d’Urbanisme - PDU) and, in particular, to plan the occupation of space.
Egis brings to bear all its expertise and know-how in the hydraulic field, particularly on the subject of flooding.
