Rescuing Carliza

The Conservancy Adaptation Project was intended to get a clear understanding of drainage regimes and the interventions necessary to increase drainage capacity, but it has not started yet

Dear Editor, Extensive flooding earlier this week in Georgetown and many coastal areas has shown once again the overall degradation in the ability of the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) and the City of Georgetown (M&CC) to manage floodwaters, as the drainage systems under their respective responsibility continue to function at reduced capacities instead of progressive increases over time.

Questions on the laptop project
