Tidal Flood Campaigns
Dual-pronged Tidal Flood Campaign
An awareness campaign in three affected panchayaths of Kumbalangi, Ezhikkara and Puthenvelikkara in coastal Ernakulam district to support affected communities to take up the issue as a disaster. It also aims to build training material on the science, monitoring of the extent and aggravation, its causes and mitigation possibilities.
The first step towards this was a three-day coastal journey to identify the extent of the issue, observations and attitude of the people towards this chronic disaster.
We network with the district administration and the local self-governance bodies to bring to their notice the severity of the disaster. We are campaigning for co-creating monitoring and mitigation strategies with active involvement of the Ernakulam District Administration, the District Disaster Management Authority and the Jilla Panchayath.
