The initiative sought to increase the capacity of the ministry’s staff as well as to develop an early flood warning system in San Ignacio Town and Bullet Tree Village. Minister of Sustainable Development, Orlando Habet, spoke about the importance of the partnership and how it aided in building climate resilience in the Cayo District.
