Eugenio-Magano Farm 01 (Cadu, Ilagan) EcoCulture Projects.
There is a great chance that the cyclical El Niño may happen this year (2014) -- a period of prolonged hot weather and scarcity rain that would likely lead to devastating drought. The EcoCulture projects proposed here are intended for tropical countries like the Philippines -- with defined rainy season and dry season, occurrence of several typhoons each year -- to address the following key issues:
- How to store in place, most (if not all) of the rainwater during the rainy season, for use later during the dry season, and especially during prolonged drought during the advent of El Niño.
- How to mitigate the devastating impact of flash floods, as a result of heavy rains during typhoons (compounded by massive deforestation).
- How to mitigate the impact of strong winds that accompany typhoons and storms that visit the Philippines several times each year.
