Flood-Based Livelihoods Symposium: Harnessing the potential of flood water
Researchers, governments and development agencies are hastening to harness the potential of floodwater for securing food security and sustainable livelihoods.
Seasonal flooding is largely considered a destructive hazard that disrupts many agricultural activities and livelihoods. However, according to the Global Resilience Partnership, ‘Floods are not always a hazard. They may also sustain aquatic life and riverine biodiversity, recharge aquifers, enrich soils and in some of the world’s poorest areas they are the main source of irrigation’.
