Introduction to the Sri Lankan Water Management Study
Trevor Turpin, was awarded one of the coveted Winston Churchill Chance of a Lifetime fellowship bursaries to investigate lessons for the UK from monsoon climate water management systems.
He travelled to Sri Lanka to investigate the 2,000 year old techniques of countries which have to deal with drought and monsoon conditions . The applicability of these systems and their management to the UK under predicted climate change conditions will be analysed.
The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust offers Fellowships to British citizens resident in the UK from all walks of life to gain a better understanding of the lives and cultures of people overseas. Applicants need to demonstrate that their project is feasible, worthwhile and of benefit to their community and to the UK on their return.
