Matt gets wet in Colombo, all in the course of duty
There are a number of wetlands within the Greater Colombo area that play an important role in providing ecosystem services, such as water treatment and flood water retention. The project aims to reduce flooding in the catchment of the Colombo Water Basin and rehabilitate, improve and maintain local infrastructure.
This is the second site visit and this time the warm monsoon rains are giving Matt and the team an insight into the extent of seasonal flooding.
Matt is giving a public talk on 15th May in Colombo – free entry so pop along if you are in the area!
