The Droughts and the lives of our people
On going Drought according to what i heard have already damaged the lives of our people mostly in Polonnaruwa and most part of NCP and in South, right? .
So that has Ruined day to plans , cultivation plans of our people.
And People in Tissa - Kataragama Route protested against the water issues they face. if drought is the main cause for the issue , what is the solution or what are the solutions that the people in the area suggesting as a solution / solutions.
Drought is not a strange thing or something new we hear. so when a situation like that arises , how we should face it?
what are the solutions so far practiced or applied?
Do we need more accurate plans?
Man Made Tanks?
If we use more water for , to produce electricity other than or more than the amount we consume daily, lets say amount required for all humanitarian needs, and if the remaining not sufficient to address the need specifically during a drought, what are the alternatives we have to address the issue?
what i meant is a permanent solution.
International Water Management Institute locate, based in Sri Lanka. What type of (effective) connection the government maintain with them?
Did IWMI suggest anything long lasting , sustainable for the issue, are those different to the mechanisms , solutions suggested by the experts of GO departments, relevant ministries, well wishers?
Do you maintain a healthy relationship with the Institute?
what are the Projects functioning currently, or they maintain, implemented in the country in order to manage water , resources in the country though they are global and helping globe to address the issue?
Any on going Projects?
Is the program implemented by former government, to protect , rehabilitate ancient weva or tanks, to repair abandoned tanks still functioning ?
Present government layered foundation stone for a new development project, Moragaha Kanda, if such projects requires water immensely for suggested or expected needs, how are we going to find the water we need for other consumer needs. we know that both equally important.
Is the rising (?) population a challenge or is it worsening the issue, water scarcity, if you have identified or consider it as a chronic situation , problem we face ?
i cannot think of an immediate solution for such issues.
Yes, sending water bousers for the areas that has no other solution or alternative is good. but i am thinking of something sustainable. i know that you have addressed the issue compared to the situations decades back , i am thinking of the the remaining parts of the issue.
i hope and wish that it will rain soon to heal the drought/s we face numerous ways. Perhaps we might have to organize some Bodhi pooja , prayer programs to heal the hearts and minds of the people and the lands cracked.
wish you all a rainy future!
