El Niño - La Niña and Rainfall or Lack Thereof - Limits to Growth

Article Index

 Limits to Growth

These observations in the previous sections raise the question:

  1. How can ALL the excess rainwater during the rainy season be harvested, treated, and stored for use during the dry season -- for human consumption, farm production, livestock husbandry, and, aquaculture? 
  2. Will there be enough water in the event of a very strong and prolonged El Niño?

Finding the answers and solutions to this question is one of the main long term goals of  Kalikasan-Philippines.

 

This is crucial because the Philippines now has a population of more than 100 million, that may grow further to 170-200 million within this century.
