Matt Gray is spending a year as a researcher at the University of Mauritius in the Fulbright Program, and is also enrolled in OL 340: Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change.
Too much rain in May and drought conditions in November negatively affect farmers with both extremes. Rainfall is down 10 % but the intensity has increased. 50% of water stored in reservoirs is lost to leaks.
The film shows us how having supplies of water resources and managing them are 2 different things.
Says Matt: “Along with the basics of adaptation, I want to learn the steps for doing an adaptation project by actually doing one”.
What are your thoughts on the responsibility of managing water in a water-rich country like Mauritius?
