San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council receive over $14,000 in donation for flood risk reduction project 

Posted: Friday, September 25, 2020. 2:00 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Over the last year, the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), with support from Taiwan, has been implementing the “Flood Risk Reduction Project for the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena” in Cayo.

The PADF has handed over tools and supplies to the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council to further equip both municipalities with the ability to keep drains and public spaces free of debris or overgrown vegetation.

Keeping drains, culverts, and public areas free of debris, shrubs, or other materials will improve the run-off of floodwaters and mitigate risks of flooding during torrential downpours both seasonally and during extreme weather conditions.

The project is expected to benefit about 21,000 residents in the Twin Towns and allows the local government, along with residents, to build on civic pride and disaster risk reduction strategies during routine maintenance as well as community-led cleanups.

The donation of supplies and tools for drainage maintenance and improvement is valued at $14,000 BZ.
