Awareness programmes for farmers on disaster management

Hadabima Authority of Sri Lanka has taken steps to create awareness among the farmers of the methods they should practice to minimize the consequences of landslides and soil erosions in the central hills.

The Central Provincial Disaster Management has made financial assistance to the Hadabima Authority to implement the project. Its coordinating Officer Major Kamal Herath said in the recent times there had been several earths slips that caused pandemonium in the central hills.

Central hills itself demonstrates the strategies to be adopted. Our British planter technique of putting up rough stone mounds - and proper canals to slip way rain water prevented major soil erosions and landslides, he said.
