The shortage of borrow sources for granular material, combined with the limited availability of funds for rehabilitation projects, is generating more opportunities for innovative engineering in order to achieve cost-effective solutions. Since the introduction of geosynthetics, governments, consultants and contractors have been assisted to deliver projects to stakeholders. Geosynthetics are now considered necessary and indispensable for a cost-effective solution in multiple functions, such as reinforcement, separation, filtration, drainage, barriers, erosion control, containment and protection (ISO 10318:2006: Geosynthetics: Terms and Definitions).
