Limits to Growth
These observations in the previous sections raise the question:
- 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?
- 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.
Unfortunately, the Philippines has a land area of just about 30 million hectares.
