Rivers, as a means of communication, always played an important role in the dissemination of culture. Peoples, individuals and ideas transited rivers’ courses back and forth, exchanging goods, merchandise, religions, scientific knowledge and customs. Based on the experiences and stories of speakers from a variety of coastal cities, the challenges and opportunities unveiled by History, as well what the future may bring will be analyzed. Such an assessment will keep in mind grand projects currently being undertaken by various municipal and national governments, in particular the Greater Pearl River Delta mega-project, which encompasses 11 of this region’s cities.
