There is a great certainty that the onset of El Niño may occur between July to September 2014. El Niño will trigger hot weather and less rain that subsequently lead to drought in the Philippines. From past occurrences, El Nino may last for several months to almost two years. Such prolonged drought would devastate agriculture and impact water availability for human, industrial and economic consumption.
One of our major projects focuses on water sequestration into ponds to mitigate the impact of El Niño. Even in the absence of El Niño, the long dry season and hot summers in many regions of the Philippines require the availability of ample supply of water.Read more: Proposed Main Water Sequestration Pond in Farm 03, Cadu, Ilagan
