Quilan introduces Quxing River Dyke Pond Farming System
[2:30 PM, New Cochin]
Quilan has introduced the Quxing River Dyke Pond Farming system to efficiently farm crops in a small plot of land. The system will have a "Quilite makeover" to it, replacing mulberry with coconuts. The system basically revolves around sustainable farming. As coconut gets planted, the coconut gets harvested, and the coconut hair will be sent to the choir industry to produce low quality sacks and ropes, the coconut water to beverage factories, and the coconut flesh to restaurants as dessert. The coconut leaf will be used for handicrafts and tourist memorabilia, while a fish pond will be established nearby, which will be fed with coconut flesh. Therefore, in just a small plot of land, a person can obtain choir, coconut flesh, fish, wood, handicrafts and coconut water. This scheme would we introduced into the river plains of the Periyar as well as the greater Periyar-Bharathapuzha Delta. The scheme is expected to increase farmer incomes. Other variants of the scheme are also being planned, as to acclimatise it with the various climates of the region.

Anti-Flood Programme
[4:00 PM, New Cochin]
Quilan has introduced a new initiative to upgrade all houses in the flood prone region of Kuttanad into stilt complexes. Though most houses are going to be separate structures, a few houses are going to be joined to make a stilt megastructure, with rooms for economic activity such as a balcony orchard. Boats are also going to be installed in every complex to escort the residents if flood levels become dangerously high, or when the residents run out of food and other necessities. New inundation canals are also being planned in the Periyar river to divert excess flood water into drier regions such as the Tamil Region. 

Quilan will also organize its flood management responses into 3 types, Level 1, 2 and 3. Level 1 prevention includes the construction of small embankments or dikes, with a small flood retarding basin to allow the water to spread out rather than being confined with dikes. It will also help in reviving river ecosystems. The retarding basins will house artificially grown mangroves and will be converted into an eco tourism region. The Nilgiris and its valleys will serve as the prime site for the development of this, as it is the origin of many flood prone rivers and isn't very dense. Level 2 development includes the construction of a strip of agroforested land along the rivers, which will act as a sustainable form of a "sponge corridor", which will soak up the water. These will be built in moderately dense regions. The last level involves the construction of deeper trenches along the rivers, which may damage marine ecosystems. Due to its ecological impact, this level will only be constructed in cities, where population density is very high. To reduce the ecological impact, less dense urban areas may host parks along the river to act as sponges. Dikes will also be built in Level 3. 

The whole project may cost as much as 5 billion to 7 billion, but its economic benefits remain unparalleled as it would ensure economic stability despite natural disasters.



Prepare and prevent, don't repair and repent
