Rainwater is a gift
We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It
Our land restoration project focuses on the hydro-climate recovery of the area. We design rainwater retention measures to recharge soil and groundwater water reserves, to feed vegetation, maintain a balanced climate and revive the small hydrological cycle via trans-evaporation. Abundant water availability determines the agricultural processes and overall healthy natural environment. Our process involves the construction of retention ponds, flow control barriers, re-cultivation of old logging roads, bioretention, and more. These nature-based solutions must be as effective as possible to capture rainwater that would otherwise be drained from the land and eventually make its way to the sea via streams and rivers. A survey of the geo-physical features is necessary to locate the optimum sites for the construction of the proposed measures.
How we work
Phase 1 – Analysis and proposals
Water Balance Assessment. Quantification of rainwater runoff from the territory. Proposal of suitable water retention measures (WRM) -quantity, type, placement. A thorough visual and spatial analysis of the project area.
PHASE 2 – trainings and workshops
Project preparation, local-based workforce training, and education.
PHASE 3 – implementation and supervision
Project implementation. Construction of selected water retention measures.
