Due to global warming, the water level of the oceans has increased much more than it was predicted a few decades ago. Because of which, the coastal areas are heavily submerged even during weak cyclones. Normal tidal water is being increased significantly. As a result, various areas along the coast and rivers are overflowing during cyclones and high tides, causing sudden damage. It is possible to build an indigenous ‘climate change induced disaster’ combat system by utilizing the experience, capabilities and potential of the CPP volunteers working across the coast.
Establishing local monitoring of daily lunar tides and periodical high tides and tidal surges.
Creating a monitoring and reporting system.
Engaging CPP volunteers in climate change induced hazards.
Preventing losses due to immersion through social participation.
