The Kenneth Lee Foundation, supported by Oxfam, is working with communities in Trinidad to build modern camellones, based on this ancient system and drawing on modern scientific understanding of agro-hydrology. The system is very sophisticated, producing fertile soil, fish stock, animal fodder, localised drainage and water management, nutrient production and organic recycling. The initial project design supports adaptation to existing levels of climate variability and flooding and it is hoped that through the integration of available climate information, this project can be used as a system for adapting to longer term changes.
