Post disaster agriculture 

As climate change-induced natural disasters are becoming all the more frequent and severe, in particular hurricanes, forest fires and flash floods, people and livelihoods are affected adversely on a much greater scale than ever before. Extreme weather events have a particularly devastating effect on agricultural production seeing as crops are especially vulnerable.

HVA possesses the knowhow and requisite methodology regarding the services needed to restore the damage incurred by such natural disasters, including:

  • the restoration of the environment after a forest fire,
  • the desalination of soils after a tsunami,
  • the restoration of production facilities after a hurricane,

  • drafting full-scale restoration plans for large areas etc.
