Bullhead, Clarendon Targeted For Resilience Building

MORE THAN 30 communities in the Upper Rio Minho Watershed Area of Clarendon, including Bullhead, are slated for interventions that will help them better adapt to the changing climate.

The interventions include the installation of check dams, 250 communal rainwater harvesting systems, greenhouse installation, 50 hectares of agro-forestry, and 15 acres of reforestation.

At the recently held Bullhead Ash Wednesday Festival, over 800 community members were targeted to hear about the climate intervention measures being implemented by the Adaptation Programme and Financing Mechanism (AP&FM) of the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience.

The AP&FM has been focusing on residents of 33 communities in the area to highlight the importance of the watershed which helps in the generation of rainwater for the parish.

To date, the watershed has been ranked as the most degraded in the island.
