Water Retention

  • Goals: Increased climate change resilience, increased disaster risk reduction (DRR), increased water supply.
  • Solutions: MAR and ASR during floods/wet periods, recovery during dry periods.
  • Green infrastructure: Floodplains, wetlands/lakes.
  • Grey infrastructure: Water retention/infiltration basins, runoff harvesting, in-channel mechanisms, irrigation canals, recharge wells.
  • Policy interventions: Climate change adaptation, DRR policies, land use regulations, managing groundwater use/entitlements.
