This script is based in Honduras, Central America, and talks about Hurricane Mitch, a natural disaster that occurred in the region in 1998. We are sharing it with you because it contains information that could be useful in many African countries.
The script discusses watershed management – an important way to reduce the impact of natural disasters, including droughts, floods, hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, etc. It explains how communities can practice good watershed management, especially soil management, and how this can mitigate damage when extreme events strike.
