To find vulnerable location in Trivandrum coastal area and build up a "mini forest" for reducing physical vulnerability of the region. The project will be done with the collective community participation
While tracing back from Kerala flood 2018 to recent cyclone TAUKTAE, more than hundreds of human death, loss of livelihood and several rehabilitation schemes has been taken place in coastal area. The life of people in the region is inconsistent with the constant disasters. So it is important to prevent such disasters in long term sustainable method.
PROJECT: HARITHA DWANI
One of the main vulnerable groups in Trivandrum district is people in coastal area fishing community. Hence, we understood that it is important to make efforts to prevent main disasters such as sea erosion and flood up to limit. In the case of prevention, natural long term methods are more effective than sea walls and tetrapod's. So we plan to develop a project which can prevent soil erosion by absorbing water through huge tree plantation, and we came to the idea of mini forest. Our initial plan is to plant several varieties of flaura with participation of community members in Trivandrum
