SYNOPSIS

Recent COP26 have heard many great presentations, promises and goals pledged as it were at the Paris Climate Accords 2015 and the Kyoto Protocol UN Framework on Climate Change 1997. Many have voiced the need for “Global Awareness, Game Plan & Action Now” in order to meet the established targets to “break the spiraling cycle to Irreversible Code Red to Humanity” (as proclaimed by Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary – General 9 August 2021).

The purpose of this webinar is to:
a) bring awareness to the Equatorial Rainforest Region Challenges;
b) propose some proven Erosion and Sediment Control Mitigation Measures/BMPs that can
    improve effectiveness of ESCP designs;
c) show the reduction of additional Sea Level Rises and Climate Change.

The speaker shall share the analogical tool of “Oceans of the World in a Bathtub” to show the consequences of melting ice caps and sediment flow (hitherto largely unpublicized), each phenomenon exemplifies the “filling of the bathtub and overspills” that causes flooding of coastal communities and sinking of island nations.
