Angelino Quissonde, spokesperson for the event, stressed that the training is being carried out to train technicians of provincial governments, municipal and district administrations so that they can avoid the appearance of ravines by identification of its main signs.

Throughout the training, participants should gain knowledge on how to stabilize the development of ravines so that they do not reach large proportions.

The ravines are due to the lack of drainage system for rainwater, increasing deforestation and burning, as well as the construction of water lines.

"Today there is a great tendency to build in the water basins, which prevents the water from following its normal course" - he said.
