GWP-C “SWAG”

At the second day of the Integrated Water Resources Research Symposium, I was able to visit the booths set up by ODPM and Global Water Partnership Caribbean (GWP-C).

After a very interesting video on rainwater harvesting by GWP-C, I was very interested in visiting the booth to view what they had to offer. Imagine my glee when I saw they were distributing a unique flashdrive, similar to the one given at the symposium by the organizers, with loads of information.
