Women’s contributions to water management discussed

Feb 3, 2011 10:22:05 AM - itnnews.lk

A significant task is vested in women in overcoming wastage of water. A programme was mooted in Colombo to look into what contributions women could make in water management.

First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa presided at a function held in Colombo themed “How Asian Women could contribute to managing water resources.” It was discussed at length on the sectors the women should be apprised of in the streamlined use of water preventing wastage. An orchid plant was gifted to the First Lady by the British Botanical Gardens Association. The orchid has been named “Dendrobium Shiranthi Rajapaksa.”
